A neuro-dynamic programming approach to the optimal stand management problem

A neuro-dynamic programming approach to the optimal stand management problem

General Technical Report Pacific Northwest Research Station, USDA Forest Service (PNW-GTR-656): 265-272

Some ideas of neuro-dynamic programming are illustrated by considering the problem of optimally managing a forest stand. Because reasonable growth models require state information such as height (or age), basal area, and stand diameter, as well as an indicator variable for treatments that have been performed on the stand, they can easily lead to very large state spaces.
