Regenerate northern hardwoods species to maintain the northern hardwoods covertype.
Stop the below-ground spread of an active oak wilt pocket in order to maintain oaks into the future.
Introduce more structure into the stand and convert it to an uneven-aged stand.
Bolster oak regeneration on a stand with poor natural regeneration and heavy competition, after first cut in two cut shelterwood harvest.
Establish a mixed hardwood forest with strong oak and black walnut components on a former agricultural field.
Two step shelterwood harvest to encourage red oak, basswood, birch regeneration.
To use a two-step shelterwood harvest in a mature northern hardwood stand with the objective of increasing the oak component of the future mixed hardwood stand.
Increase stand resilience by increasing species diversity (promoting cool climate-dependent tree species) and structural complexity through brush control site preparation and artificial regeneration (conifer planting).
Manage Pennsylvania sedge and ironwood in order to facilitate northern hardwood regeneration.
To begin conversion of an even-aged sawtimber sized northern hardwood stand to an uneven-aged northern hardwood stand by reducing the basal area to 70-90 ft2/acre (16-21 m2/ha) to promote another age class.
The objective is to perpetuate red oak and mid-tolerant northern hardwoods on the site.
Precommercial free thinning at age 20 to reduce aspen dominance and favor northern hardwood species.
Better understand the relationship between Carex pennsylvanica and Carex pedunculata, deer browse, and regeneration of quality northern hardwood species in a way to create future management options to promote seedling success.
Manage for quality hardwoods and multiple age classes through release of crop trees and allowing for regeneration of red oak and paper birch through variable density thinning.
Use the shelterwood silviculture system to naturally regenerate red oak and carry red oak seedlings through heavy understory competition.
Determine best silvicultural method for paper birch regeneration.
Use patch clearcuts in a string-of-pearls configuration to create gaps in which to plant white spruce to create mixed wood
Create a high quality, structurally diverse (un-even aged) hardwood forest via implementation of a variable density treatment (crop tree release / group selection harvest).
Promote black cherry regeneration as a significant component of a tolerant hardwood stand
The silvicultural objective for this area (unit 1) was a crop tree release, improvement thinning with regeneration gaps.
Transition from a two aged oak dominated stand to multi-aged northern hardwood stand
Un-even aged mixed hardwood/conifer stand with a major component of oak. Protect oak seedlings from deer browse through the use of flexible mesh caps
Maintain the northern hardwood timber type through an even-aged silvicultural system of shelterwood with reserves.
To promote yellow birch regeneration as a significant component of a hardwood stand
Increase yellow birch stocking, maintain paper birch component, and expand basswood while limiting aspen expansion.
