Forestry terms defined
The forestry terms below pertain
to how forested stands are harv
ested and regenerated and the type
of stand that results:
Clearcutting is removal of an
entire forest stand in one cut. This
method perpetuates even-aged
Seed-Tree is removal of the
mature timber in one cut, except
for a small number of seed trees
(one to seven trees per acre). These
trees will reseed the area over a five
to ten year period. The seed trees
may be harvested once the site is
fully stocked with seedlings. This
method perpetuates even-aged
Shelterwood is removal of the
mature timber in a series of cut
tings, which extend over n nrrinH
of years. Approximately, 10-30
mature trees per acre are left to
reseed the area and provide partial
shelter to the developing seedlings
below. This shelter is eventually
removed in one or more cuts. Per
petuates even-aged stands.
Selection is removal of mature
timber, usually the oldest or largest
trees, either as single scattered trees
or small groups at short intervals,
commonly five to 30 years. Younger
trees are also thinned out at this
time to keep them growing so they
will eventually replace the large
trees harvested. Harvested areas
usually reseed naturally, so regen
eration is an on-going process.
Perpetuates or creates stands that
are uneven-aged (many age classes
Hunt for a wild Christmas tree

Marijuana use can impair driving capabilities, judgment, thinking
While most people are reason
ably aware of the dangers of drink
ing and driving, the dangers of
combining marijuana and driving
are neither as widely nor as clearly
perceived. This is due primarily to
the fact that alcohol is the more
widely used of the two drugs. Hence,
it has also received more scientific
scrutiny than marijuana.
Future editions ot Spilyay Tymoo
will feature news concerning the
Warm Springs Police Department.
Thecolumn, hopefully, will appear
regularly and will include news
involving local crimes, police-sponsored
community events and other
items of interest. Because the Police
Department and Fire and Safety
Department are under the umbrella
of the Public Safety branch, fires
will be reported here as well.

Actual driving tests have shown
significant impairments in drivers

Importantly, all experiments have
shown the highest degrees of im
paired driver performance among
subjects given a combination of
alcohol and marijuana. Both drugs
combined are more dangerous than
either alone, and, unfortunately,
many marijuana users take the
drug in combination with alcohol.
While marijuana has been proven
to impair driving performance, es
tablishing the drug as an actual
contributor to highway crashes is
more difficult than for alcohol.
This is primarily due to its chemi
cal composition. Alcohol levels re

while THC (the psychoactive in
gredient in marijuana) is rapidly
converted by the body into other
substances soon after ingestion.
