    Description

    The literature contains six different criteria of the optimal forest rotation: (1) maximum single-rotation physical yield, (2) maximum single-rotation annual yield, (3) maximum single-rotation discounted net revenues, (4) maximum discounted net revenues from an infinite series of rotations, (5) maximum annual net revenues, and (6) maximum internal rate of return. First-order conditions for maximization show the rotation effects of the criteria. Various authors have extended basic models and discussed effects of externalities, imperfect markets, changing parameters, and taxes.
