Spatially-explicit harvest scheduling models optimize the spatiotemporal layout of forest management actions to best meet management objectives such as profit maximization, even flow of products, or wildlife habitat preservation while satisfying a variety of constraints. This investigation focuses on modeling maximum harvest opening size restrictions whose(More)
Optimal parameter settings to improve the efficiency of solving harvest scheduling models with adjacency constraints were examined using Ilog's Cplex R 11.2 optimizer tuning tool. A total of 160 randomly generated hypothetical forests were created with either 50 or 100 stands and four age-class distributions. Mixed integer programming problems were(More)
Thirty-five presentations were given at the Symposium on topics ranging from bio-fuels harvesting logistics to efficiently monitoring the impacts of climate change by speakers Similar as in the previous issue this section contains also two articles. Both articles in this section involve multi-objective management planning for forests. The first paper, by(More)
