Description: Old-growth timber is still the main source of ponderosa pine sawlogs in California, but the proportion of the annual cut from young-growth sawtimber is expected to rise rapidly in the future. The increasing significance of the young-growth resource is particularly apparent in the westside Sierra subregion, where the Challenge Experimental Forest is located. In this subregion, almost 20 percent of the annual softwood sawtimber growth on commercial forest land is in young-growth sawtimber.
