    Description

    Two traditional techniques of forest control and regulation-formulas and area-volume check-are compared to linear programing, as used in a new computerized planning system called Timber Resource Allocation Method ( Timber RAM). Inventory data from a National Forest in California illustrate how each technique is used. The traditional methods are simpler to apply and less expensive, but Timber RAM allows a more realistic definition of timber resources and can analyze a wider spectrum of forest management practices.
