The need for yield tables, which predict the development of stands regenerated after logging, has been recognized in British Columbia by managers concerned with silvicultural and allowable-cut decision making. This is particularly so for lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl. var. latifolia Engelm.). The large amounts of time and resources required to directly test silvicultural regimes has resulted in attention being paid to stand and tree modelling systems. These have a useful role to play in yield production, providing that their limitations are understood and that they can be demonstrated to imitate the stand dynamics observed in direct growth measurements.
