All forest areas need selective removal of the mature trees. Trees in a forest are various ages and subject to affects of wind, lightning, insects and disease. Ideally trees are selectively removed prior to there biological maturity.
As a forest tree advances towards its biological maturity, the timber value declines. Hollow trees or trees with dead tops are beyond any value for timber.
