Abstract:

A study of seven western national forests revealed that reallocation of funds from roadless area development to timber management intensification on accessible lands would not make up the harvest lost if the roadless areas were left undeveloped. With harvesting restricted to the accessible area, the amount of land available for timber harvesting and the constraints of multiple use generally limited the harvest level more than did capital available for management intensification. Along with some losses in possible harvest, concentrating timber production on accessible lands will have a number of financial and environmental effects.
