Failure to regenerate stands immediately after harvest results in losses of value and volume yield. The amount of loss differs when the effect of delay is assessed for an individual stand or forestwide. For the forest, the loss will depend on methods of determining the allowable cut and on inventory age-class distributions. A regeneration delay that results from transitory physical or budgeting constraints will have a different effect than delays programmed into all future rotations. Losses that appear massive when assessed at the stand level may have little effect on the allowable cut, while failure to rapidly regenerate stands that are economically marginal may greatly affect allowable cut on some forests.

The Journal of Forestry is the most widely circulated scholarly forestry journal in the world. In print since 1902, the Journal has received several national awards for excellence. The mission of the Journal of Forestry is to advance the profession of forestry by keeping forest management professionals informed about significant developments and ideas in the many facets of forestry: economics, education and communication, entomology and pathology, fire, forest ecology, geospatial technologies, history, international forestry, measurements, policy, recreation, silviculture, social sciences, soils and hydrology, urban and community forestry, utilization and engineering, and wildlife management. The Journal is published bimonthly: January, March, May, July, September, and November.
