Silvicultural Systems are different ways in which forest professionals plan to extract timber from a forest for various objectives.   Most commonly seen by the public eye are clear cuts while in contrast single tree removal systems may not even be noticed.  To name a few others there are:  seed-tree, shelterwoods, group selection or group retention systems.  The Research forest is a great place to actually see what these harvest systems look like and to explore and discuss the opportunities and challenges of using them.
