Managed uneven- and even-aged

In nature, stands are either even-aged (most trees approximately the same age) or uneven-aged (trees of variable ages). The silvicultural system chosen for a cutblock will determine the post-harvest forest structure. Clearcutting, seed tree and shelterwood silvicultural systems result in relatively even-aged forests, while selection silvicultural systems maintain or create uneven-aged forests.
