Title: Forest control and regulation ... a comparison of traditional methods and alternatives

Author: Hennes, LeRoy C.; Irving, Michael J.; Navon, Daniel I.;

Date: 1971

Source: Res. Note PSW-RN-231. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 11 p

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Two traditional techniques of forest control and regulation-formulas and area-volume check-are compared to linear programing, as used in a new computerized planning system called Timber Resource Allocation Method ( Timber RAM). Inventory data from a National Forest in California illustrate how each technique is used. The traditional methods are simpler to apply and less expensive, but Timber RAM allows a more realistic definition of timber resources and can analyze a wider spectrum of forest management practices.

Keywords: yield regulation, allowable cut, forest management planning, Timber RAM, mathematical models, simulation, linear programing
