Analysis of Economic Impacts on Thinning and Rotation for Douglas-Fir, using Dynamic Programming

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Impacts of regeneration cost, initial stocking level, site, quality premiums, and variable logging costs on thinning and rotation are derived with a forward-recursion dynamic programming algorithm. The relative efficiency and information provided in intermediate solutions is compared to previously used backward recursions. A resolution is offered of an earlier controversy regarding the form of dynamic programming algorithm and validity of results in studies of thinning and rotation. Forest Sci. 24:513-522.
