Economics of forest thinnings and rotation periods for Finnish conifer cultures


Economics of forest thinnings and rotation periods for Finnish conifer cultures



Scandinavian Journal of Forest Research 17(3): 274-288

In this study simultaneous optimization of thinnings and clear-cutting was investigated. The density-dependent whole-stand model was specified for all relevant Finnish Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) and Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) site indices and solved by non-linear programming. Sensitivity analysis showed that in some cases and owing to endogenous thinnings the optimal rotation length may increase with the rate of interest and site fertility, and decrease with harvesting cost.
