You may ask, "Are my trees growing to close together?" As you can see in the photos above, it does happen.
This is one example of the need for a selective timber harvest. Trees growing too close are in competition with each other for nutrients and space.
With a selective harvest we will choose what trees will stay and what trees will be harvested in such a way as to benefit the forest. It takes a trained individual to determine this.
Thinning the overcrowded trees is one way you can increase your standing timber value because the trees left remaining will be allowed to put on growth freely growing out in diameter rather than vertically.
