"Our diagram is intended to provide general guidance in density management of red alder. The management zone defines a reasonable compromise between individual-tree and stand growth and mortality. Factors considered in its formation include desired tree size at harvest, growth rate, and yield per acre. Social and legal constraints, as well as wildlife habitat and other non-timber-related considerations, may affect how the guide is applied in developing a management plan. It must be remembered, however, that the density management diagram is only a statistical construct and does not account for events and processes that are not density-related. Developing complete management plans requires that these other factors also be considered. D.E. Hibbs and D.S. DeBell are now preparing a review of the various factors to be considered throughout a full rotation of red alder."--Conclusion
