Decay, waste and breakage

The estimates of the volume of wood within a stand lost to decay, waste or breakage that were used in the analysis for existing stands were accepted by BCFS Resource Inventory Branch staff. As was discussed above under volume estimates for regenerated stands, OAFs were applied to regenerated stand volume estimates in order to account for the loss of timber productivity due to decay, waste, and breakage. These estimates constitute the best available information and I accept their applicability for use in this determination.
