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.

Logging Selectively is a practical field guide to partial timber harvesting in forests of the Inland Northwest and the northern Rocky Mountains. It addresses topics such as timber harvests, species, tree growth and form, insects and disease, forest structure and function, and partial harvest logistics.
