Description:
A process has been developed for measuring silviculture performance on a multi-block basis. A compiler has been developed to translate field data into predicted volumes at rotation and compare these to threshold (performance) volumes for the same sites. Recommendations have been developed for assessing the impacts of stand structure on stand growth. A growth and yield monitoring system is also discussed. A system of using the multi-block system at mid term was developed. This system will allow the population to be tested to ensure that threshold volumes will be met. Corrective actions required to bring the population back on track can be ranked on a cost/m3 basis.
