Context: forest management

"In this case, the relaxing of dumb 2-pass spatial constraints, as determined through use of a spatial wood-supply model, gave a higher AAC."

contraintes spatiales de deux passages stupides
Explanation:
The predictable change in operating procedure would be in harvesting methods and timing. It would be necessary to harvest more of the land, taking much less wood that is now the norm in clearcut or two pass operations (two pass being an initial cut removing 50% or more of volume with a follow up cut in 4-6 years removing the rest as soon as regeneration is established.) We can use "extensive" to describe using more of the land base more often with low impact and "intensive" to describe clearcut or two pass harvesting. It should also be permissible to practice plantation forestry on a limited amount of the land base as this would allow a bridge between the present industry and the industry of the future.
