Even-aged Management

Even-aged management is defined as a combination of actions that result in a stand being comprised of primarily the same age class. Aspen, Red Pine, and Jack Pine are examples of trees that grow well in this situation. Even-aged stands can occur naturally after a catastrophic event a such as a forest fire. Clearcut, shelterwood, and seed tree are cutting methods that foresters use in even-aged management. These Red Pine trees were planted in 2005 to reforest a portion of the old farm and the plantation is a good example of an even-aged stand.
