One of the first published references to multiaged silviculture in ponderosa pine on national forests was by Clapp ().

He described systems of very heavy removals of approximately two-thirds of the volume and cutting cycles from 40 to 60 years. Old-growth forests once covered much of Oregon, but today less than 10 percent of our state’s heritage forests remain.

Much of what survives is found on US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management lands that are still actively targeted for logging. You can read more about Oregon's old-growth forests in the Pacific Northwest Research. XThe average number of years for ponderosa pine seed- lings to attain a height of 4% feet was determined as a phase of a growth and yield study by counting the an- nual rings at the root collar of open grown seedlings in selectively cut stands.

Eight species of pine are native to the Pacific Northwest, although many others have been introduced. Four pines (lodgepole, sugar, ponderosa, and western white) were named by Scottish botanist David Douglas. pine in the Pacific Northwest were given "stand improvement, which included thinning, pruning, and general cleanup or sanitation cutting.

This covered only a fraction of the area that could have been treated. The most extensive thinning of ponderosa pine was in the Black Hills (18) where someacres were covered.

Traveling across the state, you soon discover that Oregon is home to a wide range of trees. There are 30 native coniferous species and 37 native species of broadleaf trees. Oregon varies greatly in terms of elevation, temperature, wind, rainfall and soil composition.

Combinations of all these factors help determine the dominant tree species of an area. ment of the threatened ponderosa pine ecosystems of the Pacific Northwest.

Ponderosa Pine Forests in the Pacific Northwest There are more than 19 million acres of dry forests dominated by ponderosa pine distributed widely in the four states of the Pacific Northwest (Figure 1).

More. Clearcutting also creates forest clearings that are habitat for some species of songbirds, deer and elk. Economy of harvest. Clearcutting is the most efficient and economical method of harvesting a large group of trees. Fewer disturbances to the forest floor. In addition, the old-growth forests of the Northwest contained many alders, hemlocks, and other species that were not valuable for lumber.

Pinchot wanted to cut down these "wasteful" forests and replace them with managed forests that would produce lumber quickly. The ideal forest would be composed only of high-value trees like Douglas firs.
