An extended rotation forest is a forest stand for which the harvest age is increased beyond the optimum economic harvest age to provide larger trees, wildlife habitat, and other non-timber values.. Advantages of extended rotation forestry included enhanced carbon storage, better wood quality and the ability to create habitat for old growth dependent species. The main disadvantages of extended Ecology and management: . Designed to meet your objectives, a timber harvest may include considerations regarding timber production and income, wildlife, aesthetics, or recreation. The primary consideration of any timber harvest is forest regeneration and what harvest method is best given your timber sale goals, forest type, and condition.
