Forest Regulation By Linear Programming -- A Case Study
Abstract:The applicability of linear programming to the regulation of timber harvests from a specific forest property is demonstrated. The primary conclusion is that linear programming can presently be used to provide optimum solutions to forest regulation problems. Also, linear programming can allow a forest manager to assess the impact of a change in managerial constraints prior to actually making the change.
