Description: Two traditional techniques of forest control and regulation-formulas and area-volume check-are compared to linear programming, as used in a new computerized planning system called Timber Resource Allocation Method (Timber RAM). Inventory data from a National Forest in California illustrate how each technique is used. The traditional methods are simpler to apply and less expensive, but Timber RAM allows a more realistic definition of timber resources and can analyze a wider spectrum of forest management practices.

Keywords: yield regulation, allowable cut, forest management planning, Timber RAM, mathematical models, simulation, linear programming
