Description: This paper demonstrates the possibility of optimal planning and control of timber harvesting activ-ities with mathematical optimization models. The separate phases of timber harvesting are represented by coordinated models which can be used to select the optimal decision for the execution of any given phase. The models form a system whose components are connected and controlled by means of information flows. A mathematical model is presented for the optimal planning of harvesting activities for the forest enterprise. The use of a mathematical model contributes to the balancing of supply and demand, to the coordination of forest management plans with other activities of the national economy, and finally, to the minimization of production costs.
