English term or phrase: shelterwood
Definition from Temperate Forest Foundation:
The silvicultural method that gradually removes the trees from a given stand by a series of partial cuttings over a relatively short period of time. Eventually all overstory trees are removed, resulting in an even-aged stand.

Example sentence(s):
  • The shelterwood system involves several steps: control of competing understory vegetation, the shelterwood selection and final harvest cut. Warnell School of Forest Resources
  • The increased interest in shelterwoods for regeneration of spruce has led to an interest in how harvester productivity in shelterwood cuttings compares to productivity in clear felling. Journal of Forest Engineering
  • Forests can be regenerated by removing all but the best 40 to 60 trees and cutting the smaller, more poorly formed trees in what is called a shelterwood cut. When scattered large trees are left in a shelterwood cut, some tree species which are intermediate shade-tolerant trees such as northern red oak are favored. Virginia Department of Forestry

Tallada d'aclarida progressiva

Definition from Optimot:
Tallada d’aclarida progressiva: Mètode de tallada de masses forestals regulars que semblen aclarides, que té com a objectiu la regeneració d’un rem a la vegada que el seminal nascut resta protegit per la massa adulta que es va tallant.

Example sentence(s):
  • Un cas semblant és la substitució d'un terme per un altre de més precís. aclarida progressiva (abans aclarida successiva), aclarida progressiva irregular, tallada d'aclarida progressiva, lignós (llenyós), feix liberolignós (feix líbero-llenyós) - Institut d'Estudis Catalans  
  • El mètode de regeneració més adequat per a les masses regulars serà l’aclarida progressiva en qualsevol de les seves diferents variants, amb una o com a molt dos tallades secundàries, i buscant fer coincidir la tallada final amb una primera aclarida de plançoneda a fi d'economitzar costos. - Congrés Forestal Català
