DescriptionSixteen BASIC programs and 21 electronic spreadsheet templates for microcomputers are presented with documentation and examples of use, This software permits simulation of the growth and yield of natural stands ofeven-aged southern pines, uneven-aged loblolly-shortleaf and shortleaf pines,even-aged yellow-poplar, and of certain planted pine stands for a variety of site indices, thinning regimes, and management schemes. The software employs information from 14 published stand-level prediction systems. Precautions concerning use of the software are also discussed, and software source is presented. Novice knowledge of BASIC or spreadsheet use is required.
