Mark record


Implementation of forest management regimes is generally based on favorable financial feasibility evaluation. ECON is a routine which can be used to test the physical outputs of tree growth simulation for financial feasibility. This routine is based on a modification of present net worth termed the "forestry fund" approach, which has the advantage of not requiring a priori assumptions concerning the cost of silvicultural treatments.
