Evaluating Spatial Feasibility of Harvest Schedules With Simulated Stand-Selection Decisions
Abstract:Harvest schedules that require the cutting of adjacent stands within a limited time period may create openings of sizes that exceed policy restrictions. A procedure has been developed to assist in identifying these excesses within the spatial pattern of a proposed harvest schedule. Further, the system is capable of evaluating the extent of these opening sizes for alternative spatial patterns of harvesting, and for the effects of current selections in future planning periods.
