Commercial Thinning

     Approximately 10-15 years after the pre-commercial thinning, the first commercial thinning should be done for the exact same reasons as the pre-commercial thinning. At that time, the trees are taller and much bigger in diameter and may have now attained some value. As time passes, additional thinnings are conducted. As the trees grow in diameter, their value increases.
     After the pre-commercial thinning, other species of trees, both coniferous and deciduous (hardwoods), will start to grow. They have not grown before because of the lack of light. As the plantation is further thinned, these new trees will continue to naturally regenerate and will eventually take over from the original stand, thus completing the cycle.
