Virtual Tour of the Forest: Middle Age Pine - Thinned

Thinning also keeps the stand growing vigorously so it is less susceptible to bark beetle attack. In stands which are not thinned, the smaller trees will be crowded out and die. The virtual reality shows the better quality, healthier trees remaining after a thinning.

The pine trees cut in the thinning are sold as pulpwood and are used for making paper and chip board.
