Sustained Yield of What?

The National Forest Management Act (NFMA) legitimizes the land-management planning process for multiple-use administration of our national forests. Because confusion exists regarding Forest Service sustained yield management, and because the planning process must provide sufficient flexibility for the product mix to respond to ever-changing needs, we suggest that the policy focus be shifted from individual outputs toward a maximum sustained yield of the total value of forest output. The shift is feasible within the NFMA's direction for timber management and would improve the basis for integrated multiple-use management.
