To regenerate paper birch
Thin stands of overstocked birch pole-sized regeneration to maximize stem growth and quality development
Aspen Clearcut with Significant Paper Birch Regeneration Despite Minimal Paper Birch Reserves (USFS-SNF)
Harvest the mature Aspen before it deteriorates and loses commercial value, while increasing diversity to push for a more resilient stand.
Aspen timber sale on county land by a private contract with a logger. Enhance wildlife habitat for ruffed grouse.
Development of an Operationally Feasible Buckthorn Control Method on a Light Buckthorn Infestation in the Sandstone Forestry Area (MN DNR)
Regenerate a mature stand of aspen to a young stand of similar composition while reducing the future spread of buckthorn.
Regenerate aspen while retaining ruffed grouse habitat needs.
Multiple goals; but primarily to develop coordinated multi-landowner (USFS & MN DNR) stand management plans that integrate ecological, timber, water quality, and wildlife habitat objectives.
Shelterwood harvest to regenerate the stand to paper birch.
Harvest birch stand with aspen pockets while ensuring birch remains a major component of the stand.
To examine the effects of tree density or spacing for crop tree management of birch stands.
Patch scarification using a mulching head in northern mesic hardwoods with natural and artificial seeding (MN DNR)
Increase within stand compositional and structural diversity by increasing conifers and non-aspen hardwoods as appropriate based on native plant community and management plan goals.
To encourage aspen regeneration through rollerchopping in a young aspen stand heavily impacted by blowdown.
Natural regeneration of paper birch by reserving mature aspen and scarifying the site with a salmon blade.
Sample reserve patches retained for legacy purposes during aspen harvests (clearcut with aggregated retention) to evaluate "old forest" attributes.
