§ 933. Silvicultural Objectives.
The objectives of this article are to describe standard Silvicultural Systems and to provide for alternatives that, when applied, shall meet the objectives of the FPA (PRC §§ 4512 and 4513). The RPF shall select systems and alternatives which provide for maximum sustained production of high quality timber products.
The THP shall designate one or a combination of Regeneration Methods, prescriptions or Intermediate Treatments described by this article. If a method, prescription, or treatment not defined in the Rules (see 14 CCR § 895.1) is to be used, an Alternative Prescription shall be included in the Plan.
The assessment of maximum sustained production of high quality timber products is based on:
(a) Regeneration Methods, Intermediate Treatments and prescriptions described in the Rules which establish standards. These methods, treatments, prescriptions, and standards shall not be utilized to permit harvesting of growing stock in a manner that will significantly delay reaching or maintaining maximum sustained production.
(b) Published yield tables or other tools which can be validated and which serve as a point of reference for evaluating and selecting Silvicultural Systems and their implementation.
(c) The Sustained Yield Plan (SYP). The SYP establishes the flow of forest products from managed Timberlands, and shall demonstrate the achievement of maximum sustained production.
(d) An assessment of maximum sustained production of high quality timber products is not required for a harvest pursuant to 14 CCR § 933.4. Because these lands are designated as defensible space or Fuelbreak areas, the wood production potential of these lands is compatible with the lowest Site Classifications and they shall be considered site IV Timberlands for Stocking purposes.
