    Description

    A computerized tree growth projection system has been developed for the Lake States Region as part of a larger Forest Resources Evaluation Program (FREP). Incorporating data from more than 1500 permanent growth plots throughout the Lake States, this system projects tree growth, mortality, regeneration, and removals in stands with any mixture of tree species and sizes, for the full range of sites encountered in the field. It incorporates the latest published timber management guides for the Lake States. It can identify silvicultural treatment opportunities now and in the future from the plot data or representative tree lists for a single stand, a management unit, an entire forest property, or an entire state or region. It can also be used to update timber inventories and to project future yields and resource conditions in response to alternative silvicultural treatment opportunities for timber resource evaluation and assessment.
