  Sustainable forestry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The basic tenet of sustainable forestry is that the amount of timber yielded from a forest should be replaced at the level that the stand of trees or a forest is capable of growing without degradation of the soil, watershed features or seed source.
It is imperative to consider the potential natural vegetation, annual growth and the basal area, combined with the amount of trees per stand to develop a management plan for area sizes from a stand to an ownership through the entire forest, as well as considering the landscape and position of the forest within it.
If sustainable forestry is an experiment, reserves are the control of that experiment.
