Module 2: Harvesting Systems


LESSON THREE QUIZ

1. Selection harvesting allows a more or less continual harvest of trees from a range of age groups.

a) True
b) False

2. Stands best suited for selection cutting should be made of tolerant, long lived species, preferably representing several age classes from seedlings to mature trees.

a) True
b) False

3. Selection harvesting is the same as high grading where only the biggest, best trees are cut and the less desirable trees are left for seed.

a) True
b) False

4. To ensure continual harvesting of a stand is possible, the volume cut should not be more than the volume that is added to the stand through growth.

a) True
b) False

5. When using single tree selection, fixed costs per unit wood volume harvested are low.

a) True
b) False

6. Group selection is more economical than the single tree method because the trees to be harvested are concentrated in patches.

a) True
b) False

7. The selection method removes trees from only the stand's oldest age class.

a) True
b) False

8. The selection method is the only harvesting method which establishes and maintains an uneven-aged stand.

a) True
b) False

9. Selection cutting maintains continuous cover which results in stable germination and growth conditions over time.

a) True
b) False

10. Selection cutting may easily be done by inexperienced cutters as there is little chance that such a harvest will result in a high grade cut.

a) True
b) False
