Dynamic Treatment Units in Eucalyptus Plantation
Abstract:The purpose of this study was to test airborne laser scanning-based forest inventory and the use of dynamic treatment units in eucalyptus plantations. Dynamic treatment units are formed by spatial optimization, which aggregates small inventory units. The hypothesis is that the use of dynamic treatment units increases yield and improves the efficiency of forest use. Forest inventory based on airborne laser scanning provides data for small units, which must be aggregated into feasible treatment units. The study area was a
