On my land, I've decided there's no sense growing a defective tree. If a
tree has an obvious problem, I thin it. If I think it can recover, I leave
it. Sometimes pruning helps.
Mr. Nix has a good point about damaging trees. Don't peel any bark in
your thinning operation, or you will leave scars in the wood that will
cost you heavily at harvest.
