Title: An esthetic alternative to clearcutting?
Author: Smith, H. Clay; Lamson, Neil I.; Miller, Gary W.

Description: Although deferment cutting is not a practice common in the United States, it has been used in Europe to harvest some forest stands. After a deferment cutting, the residual stand resembles a seed tree cut; however, residual trees are not cut when the regenerated stand becomes established. Instead, residual trees remain until the regenerated stand is at the end of a rotation. Hence the name "deferment" cutting.
