Exploring the uses for small-diameter trees

Small-diameter and underutilized (SDU) material refers to the timber that is left in the forest because it is not economical to remove, or local capacity to process it does not exist. SDU material also includes the dense, understory present through-out the forest as a result of 50 years of successful fire suppression. It has become apparent that there are many beneficial forest management reasons why this material should be removed, including reducing fire hazards, altering the stand species and quality mix to a more desirable composition, providing healthier wildlife habitat, and protecting watersheds. 2001
