Forest Regulation and the Alternative Rate--A Case Illustration
Abstract:The effect of a change of the alternative interest rate upon the optimum combination of silvicultural treatment schedules in the regulation of a forest enterprise is demonstrated. The effect is cast in the context of total firm planning rather than to a single tree or to a single stand, and is illustrated by changes in volume production, stand treatment, and rotation length.
