DescriptionAn application of optimal tree-stem bucking to the northeastern tree species of China is reported. The bucking procedures used in this region are summarized, which are the basic guidelines for the optimal bucking design. The directed graph approach was adopted to generate the bucking patterns by using the network analysis labeling algorithm. A computer-based bucking model was then developed based on the bucking procedures and the directed graph of the network analysis. The graphical user interface was used for the front-end of the system and the back-end was implemented via a relational data model. Bucking patterns generated by the computer bucking model were compared with the results from manual bucking for the tree species in the northeast of China. Results suggest that gains of up to about 14 percent were realized by using computer-aided bucking.
