Maximizing Financial Yields by Integrating Logging and Silvicultural Techniques
Abstract:Substantial gains in merchantable volume yields and profits from Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) stands in mountainous terrain can be achieved by considering logging and silvicultural techniques simultaneously. To maximize financial yields, managers must consider not only the length of the rotation, timing of entries, and volume removal per entry but also the proper harvesting equipment, precommercial and commercial thinning treatments, and fertilizer applications. The joint returns from combinations of techniques are greater than the sum of returns from each technique applied independently.
