Optimization of partial harvest strategies and practices: application to uneven-aged hardwood managment

The goal of the project is to evaluate and improve BIOLLEY, a decision-support model used to optimize selection cutting prescriptions in tolerant hardwood forests. Based on linear and goal programming, this model searches for partial cutting rules that maximize sustained profitability for the hardwood value chain. An analysis will be done to evaluate the robustness of the solutions given by the model considering the uncertainty related to growth and market projections.
