Success story:
Performed a timber stand improvement cut in some bottomland hardwood stand in the Hatchie River bottom. This activity concentrated the estimated of growth of 4 to 5 tons per acre per year on the best trees and the more valuable oak species. It also provided enough sunlight to the forest floor to recruit advanced oak regeneration, which will be nurtured to become the next stand when the overstory is removed at final cut.
