Abstract:This article discusses: (1) the need to gear allowable cut to actual growth and ultimate levels of growing stock desired; (2) the advantage of straight line (simple interest) projection of forest stands; (3) the advantages of a new allowable-cut formula utilizing simple annual growth rates and setting forth goals and assumptions exlicitly; (4) the need for permanent point-samples or plot-samples to provide feedback information; (5) and the importance of periodic coverage of all record-units by a cheap but valuable diagnostic tally primarily silvicultural in objective, but useful in crystallizing marking prescriptions and in allocating allowable cut and available funds.
