Conclusion

Clearcutting, mainly because of its unsightly appearance, has been singled out by some as an example of the “evils” of logging and timber management. Largely ignored by opponents are the many studies which have shown that clearcutting can be a proper and workable method for regenerating new stands of valuable fast-growing, light loving species and, at the same time, providing habitat benefits to many species of wildlife. We hope this manuscript contributes to a more complete understanding of clearcutting by providing readers sufficient information to draw their own conclusions.
