Summary: The McKnabe Thin Timber Sale Project proposes to commercially thin two conifer stands totaling approximately 58 acres. Unit 1 is a 45 acre stand approximately 70 years old and would be commercially thinned to 60% canopy closure. Unit 2 is a 13 acre progeny test site plantation. Progeny test sites are part of the tree improvement activities that started in the 1960s for large scale operational breeding programs. The existing progeny test site is overstocked due to lack of density management treatments such as pre-commercial thinning earlier in the stands life.
