DescriptionIn the past decade or two sustained yield management has been emphasized as never before in the Douglas-fir region. It would be difficult to cite all the economic and technological factors that have encouraged landowners to grow timber as a crop. But one of the most potent sources of encouragement is the fund of technical information on timber growth, silviculture, and fire control that has been assembled since foresters came into the western woods, The Douglas-fir yield table, the regeneration manual, systematic fire-danger measurement--these are but a fear of the improved tools available now to help answer the question: How can owners increase the yield from their lands?
