Application of Tree Improvement to Mini-, Midi-, and Maxi-Rotation Management

In a paper titled "Mini-Rotation Forestry" (Schreiner, 1970), I predicted that much greater effort must be directed toward more intensive--and more expensive-- silviculture; and that a major requirement for maximum success of such intensive silviculture will be genetically improved planting stock. Obviously, mini-rotation management is not the only answer to the future production of fiber and timber in the Northeast. There are at least three broad approaches that would fit the changing environment of forest management; these are designated as mini-, midi-, and maxi-rotation management.
