    Description

    This hypothesis was tested by a linear programing model: Roadless areas on the Sierra National Forest precluded from planned future development would be candidates for wilderness designation, and the associated loss in present and future timber harvests could be offset by investing in more intensive management. The results of this simulation test suggest that levels of programed harvesting cannot be maintained when roadless areas are withdrawn and funds are reallocated for intensive management on other areas. Additional tradeoffs were found in estimating the effects on fish, wildlife, recreation, and visual resources.
