Description: This manuscript provides information needed for the user to access current information about forest growth and yield simulators. Ultimately, the best source of information for any simulator is the user’s guide and the sage advice of those who built the simulator. In some instances, these people are easy to find and are willing to provide all the support for the program. Other simulators have, unfortunately, been abandoned due to retirements and other career moves of researchers. Users should take advantage of the opportunity to make direct contact with developers whenever possible. Much which is useful is not published, and much which is published is not useful.
Key Words: computer models, simulation
