Timber Stand Improvement

The woodlands of Indiana are not always arranged in the most desirable way to meet the land use objectives and needs of landowners.  Certain elements in the woodlands can be manipulated to make a forest healthier and more productive. Timber stand improvement consists of thinning overcrowded stands (of trees), deadening harmful grapevines, killing cull trees, and so on.  This is in turn will allow the remaining trees more access to sunlight, nutrients and water.  That means the higher value trees will flourish bringing more profit to later timber harvests.  When left alone, the trees will develop much slower and not reach their full potential.  TSI will help your forest become much healthier and will benefit future generations and harvests.
