Allowable Cut Falldown: Effects of Log Rules, Rotation, and Intensified Management
Abstract:Analysis of a 500,000-acre management unit in the Douglas-fir region of western Oregon and Washington has revealed that shifting from Scribner log rule to cubic-foot measure does not eliminate allowable cut falldown at the end of an old-growth conversion period. Effects of shortening rotation and intensified timber management on size of falldown can be significant.
