Maximum Cubic Volume Production Through Easily Derived Optimum Thinning Schedules
Abstract:A step-by-step method for finding an optimum thinning schedule for red pine (Pinus resinosa) is described for use by practicing foresters. Knowledge of the complex procedure leading to the optimial solution is not required. For species other than red pine, a basal area growth model in the form of a Richards' function must be fitted.
