A common silvicultural practice in young forests is thinning to increase the growth rate of residual trees. However, the effect of thinning on total stand carbon stock in these stands is uncertain.

We studied the Prince of Wales flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus griseifrons) in temperate rain forest of southeastern Alaska to provide the 1st quantitative estimates of demography from southeastern Alaska and test predictions of the hypothesis that Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis)-western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla) forest is primary habitat for G.

The information contained in Stands sampled in this study were part of a PNW stand-density study (DeMars, ) and provided trees grown at several densities and thinned at stand ages of 14–48 years.

Two companion studies used the same sites and sample ://   First, they contained Sitka spruce and western hemlock that typify the young-growth commercial timber base in southeast Alaska in terms of site quality, age, composition, and size. Second, the stands were included in a USDA Forest Service regional stand-density study that contained thinned and unthinned trees (Table 1).+recovery,+grade+yield,+and+properties+of+lumber.

DeMars dense even-aged stands hemlock often crowds out both Douglas fir and Sitka spruce. It is commonly observed that where spruce occurs in such stands the density is less. Spruce ordinarily grows to larger sizes than hemlock, and over long periods tends to reduce it to a sub- ordinate position or eliminate it.
