Abstract

Linear programming(LP) is a well-known method in optimizing timber harvest schedules. This paper describes a linear programming formulation of korean pine stands for timber harvest scheduling problems. Simulation technique and LP were applied to optimize the time and space distribution of the sustained yield for the 10-year forest management planning horizon. Growthfunction of korean pine stands in study area was derived with the yield table. This growthfunction was contained to the simulation model in estimating of changing stand volume conditions for the planning horizon. These estimated values were served as the basic data of LP model, and LP model was formulated with the maximum of periodical harvest volume calculated by the classical yield regulation method (Paulsen-Hundeshagen formula) and the maximum of periodical harvest area calculated for the normal age distribution. The timber harvest schedule was established periodically for each subcompartment of korean pine stands in experiment forest of College of Forestry in Kangweon National University with the here developed LP model.
