Sustained timber yield cutblocks can be productive rangeland for both livestock and wildlife, however, careful management of these areas is requirement to ensure that both goals of successful forest regeneration and maintenance of forage for livestock are achieved.

The purpose of the manual is to improve communication between overlapping grazing and timber disposition holders, thereby reducing conflict and facilitating integration. The manual requires overlapping disposition holders, thereby reducing conflict and facilitating integration. The manual requires overlapping disposition holders to discuss the potential impacts of their land management activities on each other's operations and develop operational planning agreements or Grazing Timber Agreements prior to any new integrated timber harvesting or grazing activities.
