Abstract

Nonlinear programming (NP) is applied to the problem of finding optimal thinning and harvest regimes simultaneously with species mix and diameter class distribution. Optimal results for given cases are reported. Results of the NP optimization are compared with prescriptions developed by Appalachian hardwood silviculturists.
