The characteristics of lodgepole-pine stands suitable for mechanical strip thinning are defined within two stand types. Ranges of age, density, diameter, and height are given. For each stand type, treatable hectares (within reasonable accessibility) in British Columbia are estimated, and recommendations for equipment requirements are presented.
