    Researchers at the USDA Forest Service, Northeastern and Southern Research Stations, with many collaborators, have been developing a computer software product called the NED Decision Support System. This program is designed to help forestry consultants and their private landowner clients develop goals, assess current and potential conditions, provide ways to study and select from different scenarios, and produce management plans for their forest properties. This NED process has recently been applied to Deer Hill Tree Farm in Gourdin, SC. The authors discuss the results of field testing NED at a 1000 acre family-operated farm.
