After reading the thread, I got on ebay and looked at the books mentioned.  I wanted to get the book Ron had suggested, but it has went up quite a bit in price, but I scored the other The Practice of Silviculture by David M. Smith 1986 edition for $3.99 postage and all.  Said it looked never used and still had the dust jacket.  Probably over printed it.  For 4 bucks I cant go wrong.  Thanks for all you folks that made this 2013 thread.  I know my woods needs work and I am doing the best I know how to remove trees of lesser value and let the better ones remain.  I only cut the good stuff when I have an order that requires it.  I have a custormer that orders 100 2 x 6 x 8 each month of hardwood.  Thats where I am using the crooked and bad leaners, as you can work with a bad log when its only 8 ft. long.  It is helping but thats not a lot of wood either. Pulp market here is severely depressed. Banjo

Yes, this thread is right down my alley. I even started threads on this forum about this very subject and I never saw this thread to my knowledge.

I am also glad this floated back to the top, I just read through and appreciated hearing from some experienced folks sharing their wisdom.

We have 8 wooded acres ourselves and I would love to figure out a plan to ensure the next generation of trees starts off on the right foot.

Off to look for the books recommended!

Thanks everyone. 8)
