Specifications include, but are not limited to:A. Simple Spacing Thinning When thinning on a spacing basis, Contractor will select and leave uncut the largest liveconifer trees of good form and vigor that will maintain the average spacing designated in theUnit Description Table. To maintain average spacing, Contractor may not need to cut asmany trees immediately adjacent to gaps. However, clumps or patches should not be leftunthinned to make up gaps in the stand. If the Compliance Forester determines that narrowerspacing is appropriate for portions of a Unit, 10' x 10' spacing will be used. Spacing is theaverage distance between trees that will result in the correct number of trees left per acre.The number of trees left per acre will be measured by DNR to determine compliance with thePer Acre Zone of Acceptance as described in Clause C-02.B.

Contractor shall notdamage the stand by cutting trees that will create undesirable gaps in the stand. The numberof trees left per acre will be measured by DNR to determine compliance with the Per AcreZone of Acceptance as described in Clause C-02, except when desirable trees exceeding thediameter limit comprise a majority of the total tree count.
