Inventory Projection with the Georgia Regional Timber Supply (GRITS) Model
Abstract:A regional timber supply model was developed to project softwood and hardwood supplies at state and substate levels. The model runs on a microcomputer and was applied to Georgia as a case study. Data are entered in a spreadsheet template, and forecasts are made using a Pascal program. The model seems accurate, is easy to use, relies on easily obtainable forest survey data, and can provide projections for substate areas. Projections made for Georgia indicate that softwood supplies will decrease substantially in many important substrate areas given current growth and harvest levels, but hardwood supplies will increase.
