What is seed tree cutting?

Thumbtack Editors

Seed tree cutting is a type of forestry performed to stimulate new growth in a forest, according to the USDA Forest Service. This type of cut removes trees from the ecosystem that have passed their reproductive phase and no longer produce seeds. This can be important for forest health and environmental protection.
