Total-Forest Concept in Multi-Resource Management
Abstract:Management for multiple resources requires consideration of the entire forest rather than individual stands. In a fully regulated forest, changes in rotation age can compensate for stocking changes that affect product output. Hence, analysis of the interaction between rotation and stocking forestwide is necessary to identify management options for efficient production of conflicting benefits. An illustration is provided by an analysis of the production of grass and slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm.) in the southeastern Coastal Plain.
