In most national forests in which regenerated stands will have considerably higher volumes than present stands, large increases in harvest during the first decade can be attained, under nondeclining yield, by allowing variable rotations for regenerated timber starting at age of first commercial thinning. Where regenerated volumes will not exceed those of existing stands, the increase will be negligible. Whatever minimum age is used, variable rotations will facilitate attainment of nondeclining yield over the entire planning horizon.
