Timber Thinning

The thinning process is necessary and important for forest health and timber management. Thinning selectively removes trees so that the remaining trees have more access to space, nutrients, and light for growth which leads to higher quality timber product and increased value. By removing immature, dying, or dead trees, the remaining trees have more space, nutrients, and light to reach their potential by growing faster and larger. Thinning also promotes other non-timber uses such as grazing, wildlife, and recreation along with providing periodic incomes.


Clearcutting removes all the trees in a given area, much like a wildfire, hurricane or other natural disturbance would do. It is used most frequently in pine forests, which require full sunlight to grow, and in hardwood forests with yellow poplar, sweetgum, cherry, maple and other species that require full sunlight.

Clearcuts are an efficient way to convert unhealthy stands to healthy, productive forests by controling the tree species that grow on the site through natural or artificial regeneration.


While a clearcut removes all canopy cover and is unattractive for a short period of time, it is an effective method for creating habitat for a variety of wildlife species. Animals that eat insects, such as turkeys and quails, and those that eat annual and perennial plants, such as bears and deer, thrive in recently clearcut areas. Many creatures also find shelter from weather and predators in the low growing grasses, bushes and briar thickets that follow this type of harvest. In addition, clearcutting is an important forest management tool because it can be used to create edges - areas where two habitat types or two ages of the same habitat meet. Because edges provide easy access to more than one habitat, they usually have more diverse wildlife communities than large blocks of a single habitat.
