When crowded groups of small trees occur among older timber they will be thinned, provided they contain marketable material. Brush should be lopped and scattered. YOUNQ-OROWTH HARDWOODS (EVEN-AGE1): In young hardwoods, cxittings should be restricted to (1) improvement and increment thinnings in stands of the tolerant, longer-lived species, and in immature stands of intolerant, shortlived species (aspen and paper birch), wherever merchantable material can be removed practicably; and (2) to clear cuttings of aspen and paper birch which have reached physical maturity. (1) The thinnings should remove (a) merchantable defective trees, (6) merchantable trees of the less valuable species in the stand, (c) not over 50 per cent of the trees comprising the dominant, codominant, and intermediate crown classes, and (d) all mercliantable trees of the subordinate crown classes.
