Calculation of Allowable Harvest for the National Forests
Determining allowable harvest for national forests is changing from relatively simple formula approaches to a complex method of computer calculations. Financing, manpower, management alternatives, and multiple-use decisions are among the inputs used to analyze the full range of allowable harvest opportunities. Programmed allowable harvests can be readjusted annually to reflect current changes. Improved inventory processes that map the location of treatment opportunities and constraints are being tested. Standards for such in-place inventories are being written. These new processes are expected to be operational in fiscal year 1974.
