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

вибіркова рубка

Definition from own experience or research:
Вибіркова рубка - це спосіб рубки лісів, при якому періодично вирубують дерева певного віку, розміру чи якості.

Example sentence(s):
  • Методом кінного трилювання ми заготовляємо біля 20% деревини. Якщо проводиться вибіркова рубка, то там набагато краще проводити кінне трелювання. Бо того, що трактор не може ходити поміж дерева, а коник забирає одразу з місця кожен сортимент -  
  • Прикладом може служити співставлення двох форм ведення лісового господарства – суцільнолісопросічне ("жорсткий" вплив) та вибіркової вирубки дерев ("м’який" вплив). -  
  • Ці ліси виконують функцію оздоровлення довкілля, охорони здоров'я людей, збереження генофонду рослин, захисту кліматичних, ґрунтових, гідрологічних умов навколишнього середовища. Господарська діяльність в них заборонена, дозволяється тільки вибіркова рубка перестиглих екземплярів та санітарна рубка. -
