The Land and Forest Services proposal to fully allocate the coniferous allowable cut within the W6 timber supply had raised concern over the sustainability of the resource. To address this issue, a volume sampling program was initiated to provide information about the deciduous and coniferous timber supply in the area. This volume sampling plan was intended for yield curve development for forecasting timber supplies in both the deciduous and coniferous land bases. A summary of the project included a distribution of the plots including cover type, crown closure, height class, and TPR. The final report entitled, “W6 Volume Sampling Program, Project #WEYDV 02-08, Final Summary Report”, was submitted by Neil Stevens, November 1999.
