Cut:
11.2 acres total (32 groups of 0.35 acres): 1937-1940. 
18.0 acres total (39 groups of 0.5 acres): 1951. 
9.1 acres total (13 groups of 0.7 acres): 1960.

: 1992. 
For all cuts, all hardwoods >1.6" d.b.h. were cut. All softwoods <4.0" d.b.h. and a few of the better formed 4" to 6" d.b.h. Were left uncut. Cuttings were centered around clusters of old trees.
