Timber Stand Improvement

Bay State Forestry Service will complete the work on the ground to improve the growth of forest stands. Often, a forest can benefit substantially from the removal of poor quality trees, to grow high quality, healthy trees. Removing the low quality canopy trees creates openings to allow new seedlings to become established on the forest floor. In many cases, these low quality trees can be reclaimed as cordwood or chipped and used as a source of renewable green energy for power plants.
