Abstract:

Fast growing crops of timber managed under a coppice system provide a challenging problem in capital theory for a forest manager. Because of rapid growth, miscalculation of when to harvest and how many harvests to make before reestablishment of the stand can be costly. Utilizing the concept of land rent, this paper develops an analytical method for determining optimal harvest ages and optimal numbers of harvests before stand reestablishment. Forest Sci. 31:398-404.

Keywords: Faustmann Model; coppice harvesting; economic optimization; harvest age
