    Description

    A decision-making model for managing or regenerating southern upland hardwoods is being created for three physiographic provinces including the Cumberland Plateau, Western Highland Rim, and Upper Coastal Plain. The model performs a stand evaluation, from a silvicultural standpoint, and declares a stand as being either manageable or in need of regeneration. Model variables include species class, diameter, height, grade, vigor, crown class, and tree-preference class. Each of the variables is used to generate a stand-index value that must meet a predetermined cutoff value in order for a stand to be considered manageable. Any index value below the cutoff value will return a decision to regenerate the stand.
