An application of linear programming to multiple-use forest management planning



An application of linear programming to multiple-use forest management planning



Journal of Korean Forestry Society 88(2): 273-281



In this study, linear programming (LP) was applied to solving for optimal harvesting schedules of multiple-use forest management in Mt. Kari area managed by Chunchun National Forest Station. Associated with the geographic characteristics, the study area was classified into 4 large management units or watersheds and simultaneously applied were the site-specific levels of management constraints: nondeclining yield, initial cut for existing stands, % cut area, the volume of soil erosion, timber production and carbon storage, ending inventory condition and % area species selection for regeneration. The problem was formulated using both Model I and Model II techniques. In this paper, the formulations are presented and the results of the optimal solutions are discussed for comparison purposes.
