Value maximization of forest stands through optimal inventory and cross-cutting methodologies

Value maximization of forest stands through optimal inventory and cross-cutting methodologies

General Technical Report North Central Forest Experiment Station, USDA Forest Service ( NC-186): 117-123

The Irish sawmilling industry is experiencing a phase of extremely tight profit margins, caused by a temporary over-capacity in production, leading to high stumpage prices and by the need to penetrate international markets. Emphasis has consequently been placed on maximizing value recovery from harvested stands. This paper outlines research undertaken in the development of a decision support system for a medium-size mill.
