Covers the regulation, harvest scheduling and planning techniques that are central to modern forest management. Traditional forest regulation is covered in detail, with assessments of such classical techniques as area and volume control as well as the neoclassical concepts of area-volume check and combined area and volume control. The sections on harvest scheduling examine mathematical programming models and solution techniques and their applications in scheduling problems; techniques using economic considerations, sloping demands and binary search are also discussed. There is a section on planning that includes a look at multiple objective techniques and FORPLAN, the USDA-Forest Service system for forest-wide planning. In addition, it contains useful information on linear programming methods and after- tax cashflow accounting.
