    Description

    U.S. Department of Agriculture regulations permit departures from current National Forest timber harvesting policies when "implementation of base harvest schedules.., would cause a substantial adverse impact upon a community .... " This paper describes the kinds of information needed for forest managers to adequately assess the relevance of the departure issue to particular planning units. The relevance of the departure issue varied, depending on: (1) future timber supply, (2) timber dependency, (3) the long-term feasibility of alternatives to current timber harvesting schedules, and (4) whether or not the growth of industries not dependent on timber might compensate for a timber shortage.
