A jack pine management simulator containing a distance-dependent growth model and an economic efficiency model is described and demonstrated. Several simulations of fertilizer application are presented which demonstrate the ease and flexibility of the simulator as well as the likely biological and economic consequences of fertilizing forest stands.
