Description: Estimation of the regulated allowable-cut is an important step in placing a forest property under management and ensuring a continued supply of timber over time. Regular harvests also provide for the maintenance of needed wildlife habitat. There are two basic approaches: (1) volume, and (2) area/volume regulation, with many variations of each. Some require sophisticated computational facilities and expertise along with extensive inventory data. The area-scheduling approach described herein, is a hands-on, low-tech method that provides safeguards against under- or overcutting.
Keywords: allowable-cut, harvest regulation, volume control, area control
