While many forest landowners are interested in cutting trees to improve forest health, generate income, or other reasons, they are often reluctant to alter the appearance of their forest too dramatically. This leads many to say they want to log "selectively". However, partial harvests made without a basic understanding of forest ecology, tree growth, and genetic principles may actually threaten forest health.

This 30 minute video outlines concepts to help forest land owners, logging operators, and thinning contractors understand and appreciate basic tree characteristics to favor or cut when harvesting timber or thinning.
