Changing conceptions of sustained-yield policy on the national forests

, : Changing conceptions of sustained-yield policy on the national forests. Journal of Forestry 81(3): 150-154

A discussion of changes in definition as used by the USDA Forest Service over the last 75 yr. The most restricted interpretation, that of a non-declining harvest, was adopted in 1973 and reflected in the National Forest Management Act of 1976. It is argued that the policy should be re-examined because of the lack of evidence that non-declining even flow ensures either stable communities or forest resource protection.
