Many woodlot owners are moving into what they call slective harvest which provides a better woodlot management program. They do not like prospective logs chewed up with large skidders and are often using the horses or compact or utility type tractors to do the work of the skidders. The owners don't make as much per board foot but have nice looking woods that provide them a longer period of income with a more productive forest. ....

I may be missed what is being talked about here but in my part of the world timber and pulpwood are both major income sources. Planned planting and growing of pines is very major here with large land owners and especially the land owned by the timber companies. Not sure the spacing they use but too close for them to grow to timber and about 10 years old they cut every third row giving room for the other two to grow. (this would only be good for pulpwood or fence post.) Funny how much of this I see not to be sure on this part but think most let those two rows grow for about 10 more years and often harvest ever other row of those and then come back for the third row a few years later. Now hardwoods here are left to reseed them self and are normally clear cut.

Have not notice the use of large skidders here being reduced. kt ....
