This note investigates the implications of spatially autocorrelated yields on forest management optimization procedures and results. The problem is defined and analyzed conceptually, followed by a simple case example demonstration. It is concluded that spatial arrangements may be quite important in managing risk and uncertainty in forest ecosystems. For. Sci. 42(1):118-123.
