The SWO variant is for young mixed-conifer stands in southern Oregon and northern California (see map) and the SMC variant variant is for northwestern Oregon and western Washington (see map). Conifers provides forecasts for young plantations of single species or mixed-species growing with or without competition from shrubs (data requirements/overview).

User's Guide/Help System Version 4.13 - File must be saved first and then opened to work properly.
The User's Guide is provided when you download the most recent version of the simulator. It is only necessary to download this file when updates have been made to the help system, or if your version has been somehow lost or corrupted. If the version number for help equals the current version number for conifers then it should not be necessary to download this file.

Updates, bug fixes, answers to questions and other bits and pieces of information on the simulator are here in CONIFERS Notes.
