Stand selection guidelines for use in stand management prescriptions
Biological criteria for ranking stands for spacing
The following guidelines are intended to help prescribers in evaluating and selecting appropriate sites and spacing treatments for stand management prescriptions. Ranking is from most desirable (1) to least desirable (3) with some sites or conditions ranked as not recommended for treatment (NR).
These guidelines are not intended for use on areas that have a legislated requirement for maximum density spacing. Standards and guidelines for maximum density spacing are included in the section "Spacing required by silviculture prescription" of this guidebook.
