Thinning options allow for simulation of a variety of management strategies. Input consists of a stand inventory, including sample tree records, and a set of option selection instructions. Output includes data normally found in stand, stock, and yield tables and details on selected sample trees. Preparation of input, interpretation of output, and model formulation are described. Guidelines are given for potential uses and limitations.
