Timber Stand Improvement
|A Timber Stand
Improvement, or TSI, is a forest
management technique that involves
thinning the forest with chainsaws.
TSI projects are conducted to
meet landowner objectives and to be
silviculturally sustainable. Long Forestry
performs a high quality timber stand
improvement that provides better
aesthetics and additional benefits to
wildlife and the forest.
We cut all stumps to within inches of
the ground and we
do not leave waist high stumps
or angled stumps that could puncture a
skidder or ATV tire.
also allows for the development of
desirable stump sprouts and provides our
client with visually pleasing forests.
Prior to any TSI, Long Forestry inspects
for invasive species, providing
additional protection to the landowner.
Our employees are well trained
and experienced, we completed over 800
acres of TSI in the winter of 2009
through spring of 2010. Each
member of the TSI crew is S-212
certified and is
trained in the class
and on the job by Long Forestry.
