Fig. 2. Evolution of the number of exploitable trees under a repeated felling regime reproducing the parameters of the first logging: diameter cutting limit (DCL) = 80 cm, logging intensity = 90% and 95% of the number of initial standing trees ≥ DCL for Entandrophragma cylindricum and Triplochiton scleroxylon, respectively, felling cycle = 30 yr. Recruitment among the smallest diameter class (10 cm dbh) was linked to the number of trees present in the largest diameter classes (≥80 cm dbh for E. cylindricum and ≥60 cm dbh for T. scleroxylon).
