The use of variable retention (VR) in Canada,
the USA and Tasmania, the island state off
southern Australia, varies widely. Variable
retention, a harvesting technique that
retains biological legacies at the site-level, is
increasingly being used worldwide in place
of clearcutting. Usually the aims are greater
social acceptability for timber harvesting and
improved biodiversity outcomes
