In uneven-aged hardwood forests, selection cutting is often recommended as the best silvicultural treatment for maximizing the production of quality timber destined for saw timber and veneer wood. However, the application of this treatment is not always profitable in the short and long terms. Are there any tools available to help forest managers choose which trees to harvest and thus promote the profitability of this treatment, without compromising future harvests?
