Third row thinning result

This is a newly finished 3rd row thinning treatment. The trees in this picture are approximately 30-35 years old. It is important that the slash (broken up tops and unmerchantable material) is scattered along the ground as if it is piled, it may result in a Pine beetled (Iips pini) infestation as a secondary occurence during a drought year which can kill the remaining trees. Removing the slash entirely is not practical using this logging method.
