DescriptionAn expert system, FOREX, was developed to access the data from the database management provided by MANAGE. For a specific site index, the user of FOREX can obtain information on present net worth, optimal thinning entry timing, optimal stand rotation age, diameter at breast height, volume by grade and value of the trees harvested, and based on the cable yarder used, the average slope yarding distance, truck class, road class, log-bucking methods, and the number of thinnings desired. This paper describes FOREX, which is valuable to forest managers, planners, loggers, and landowners, planning to harvest even-aged upland oak stands located on steep terrain.
