Northern hardwood stands with multiple age classes allow immediate use of selection system to control the diameter and age-class distributions. This ensures consistency in yields, ecological conditions, visual qualities, and other values. To convert even-aged communities, landowners must partition the cut of upper canopy trees over many decades, regenerating a new age class with each entry. In both cases, landowners must commit to the long-term program of deliberate management that selection system requires.
