Title: PROFIT-PC: a program for estimating maximum net revenue from multiproduct harvests in Appalachian hardwoods

Author: LeDoux, Chris B.; Baumgras, John E.; Selbe, R. Bryan;

Date: 1989

Source: The Compiler 7(4):27-32

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: PROFIT-PC is a menu driven, interactive PC (personal computer) program that estimates optimum product mix and maximum net harvesting revenue based on projected product yields and stump-to-mill timber harvesting costs. Required inputs include the number of trees/acre by species and 2 inches diameter at breast-height class, delivered product prices by species and product type, and haul distance by road class for each product. The product mix that maximizes net revenue is determined by comparing equivalent unit-product values for each species. The user can specify truck type for hauling and select from 10 yarding or skidding machines to estimate stump-to-mill harvesting costs.
