We do not condone clear cutting on hardwood stands, such has been known to take place! It is always imperative that the parcel is looked at as a whole and any harvest is determined by the particularities of the woodlot based on economical and ecological factors. We use a silverculture system that enhances your woodlot for future growth, health and profitability, for example:
In the harvest of hardwoods our preference is to employ a selective practice, in which only the most mature and over-mature trees are harvested.Over crowded trees and multi-stemmed clumps are generally harvested in all cases. The residual stand then does not have to compete for future growth, thus leaving tomorrow's trees as well as the aesthetic beauty of your land intact. A Selective harvest will always result in positive health and development of the residual stand.
Our practices allow us to better utilize more species, more grades and sizes. Due to the changes in markets and environmental issues we are able to utilize a diversified amount of species including aspen, soft maple, birch, beech, pine and cedar.
