Uneven age management is the practice of managing
trees within a stand at different age classes. This
type of stand will contain large saw timber, small saw timber,
pole stage and saplings all in the same stand. Harvesting
of timber involves the selective removal of an equal amount of
each age class to maintain the un-even age characteristics. Uneven
management techniques will be utilized to promote a healthy sustainable
forest structure in areas where even-age management presents potential
aesthetic or environmental impacts.
Uneven age management requires the harvest of a
target percent of each age class within the stand. Uneven
age management will be incorporated along permanent roadways, important
watersheds and scenic lake views. Terrace
Mountain is an important scenic feature of the lake and presents
an excellent opportunity for uneven-age management.
