The aim of this study was to simulate the effect of spatial thinning on the distribution of non-industrial private forests (NIPFs) and predict the thinning area under different subsidy systems in Hokkaido prefecture, Japan. The simulated thinning area is based on a Geographic Information System (GIS) and an algorithm that considers the stand condition and applicability of different subsidies for conducting thinning. The accuracy of the simulations was checked by comparing observed and predicted… CONTINUE READING
