Long-run Sustainable Timber Yield--Floor or Ceiling?
Abstract:On a forest typical of the Douglas-fir region, analysis indicated that the policy prescribed by the sustained-yield clause of the National Forest Management Act might result in forgoing timber volume that could otherwise be harvested without ever going below the sustained yield level. Whether the extra volume should be harvested under an exception to the clause depends on how the Forest Service weighs attainment of multiple-use objectives.
