    Fall Project Guide - Tractor Supply Co.

    Fall Project Guide - Selective Tree Harvesting

    Whether you have a small tract or hundreds of acres – you should harvest your trees to improve the health of your woodlot.


    Thinning and Harvesting Trees

    • If trees are too close together, they are competing for sunlight, nutrients and water.
    • A thinning harvest removes a percentage of younger trees that have been growing for 10 or more years, allowing the remaining trees to grow faster and larger

     

     

    Clear Cutting Trees

    • This involves taking down large groups of trees, but it doesn’t have to mean clearing your whole woodlot
    • After clear cutting an area you can grow new trees from seedlings or the stump sprouts of desirable trees

     

     

    Seed Tree Method

    • Seed trees are high-quality thriving trees left after you have selectively thinned your wood

     

     

    Group Selection

    • Group selection entails cutting every tree in a certain area over a period of time – perhaps 40 to 50 years – so that the entire area or stand has been completely cut
    • This method is primarily used where you have high quality hardwood

     

     

    Single Tree Selection

    • Used to harvest trees that are low in value
    • Great method for small woodlot owners to manage their trees, provide annual firewood and create wildlife openings
