Potential Sawtimber Availability in Northcentral Pennsylvania: the Next Three Decades
Abstract:Analysis of future hardwood sawtimber availability from an 8-county region in Pennsylvania over a 30-year period shows that the volume of rotation harvests from even-aged forests could double. This is based on a model projection of the stand structure of the region's forests in combination with the assumed forest management regimes for public and private owners. Additional sawtimber could also be provided from intermediate and selection harvests. Realization of this potential output will depend on an expansion of sawtimber markets and an effective means for regenerating stands after their rotation harvest. North. J. Appl. For. 4:119-123, September 1987.
