AVVIRK-2000: A Large-scale Forestry Scenario Model for Long-term Investment, Income and Harvest Analyses
Abstract:A computer model for long-term forest management analysis is described. It is a deterministic simulation model, and provides means for a range of possible analyses, different management strategies, i.e. harvest and silvicultural investment strategies, along with the corresponding cash flow, development of forest state and profitability. The description is accompanied by a case study, employing some features of the model, based on data covering Hedmark county in Norway, with the objective of mapping consequences for potential harvest level and net present value related to varying treatments for different border zone types.
