We can cut the timber again in 10-20 years after the initial harvest. This depends on how well the timber was harvested and the logging practices used. This is one of the reasons forest management is so important to us. It not only protects the earth, but it also brings more profit to landowners in the future. If you get your timber cut by foresters who don’t care, it could take up to 40 years for the forest to be healthy enough to harvest again.
