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.
