Forest harvesting, when carefully planned and implemented, can be compatible with the management of many forest resources. By utilizing forest practices that mimic natural occurrences, biodiversity and wildlife habitat can be maintained or even enhanced.

Forests do not remain the same forever. Natural processes and disturbances, such as aging, disease, insect infestations, windstorms and wildfires, ensure that forests continually change.

Natural disturbances are unpredictable events. They can occur anywhere from every few years up to several hundred years apart, depending on climatic conditions and the type of forest ecosystem.
