    Description

    Timber RAM (Resource Allocation Method) is a long-range planning method for commercial timber lands under multiple-use management. Timber RAM can produce cutting and reforestation schedules and related harvest and economic reports. Each schedule optimizes an index of performance, subject to periodic constraints on revenues, costs, and, harvest levels. Periodic constraints can also be used to regulate forest stands and to even out the flow of timber during conversion. Schedules are calculated on computers by using linear programing techniques.
