Using the "neighborhood" concept the time interval for dynamic programming analysis of thinning and rotation was reduced to 1 year. This permitted analysis of the optimal thinning entry interval which has usually been a fixed constant in previous studies. The changes in solution with fixed intervals of 2, 5, and 10 years are provided for comparison. Forest Sci. 25:672-674.
