Abstract

Yield curves are used to quantify various timber and non-timber values on the land base. The Morice & Lakes Timber Supply Areas' (TSA) Innovative Forest Practices Agreement (IFPA) is relying on this information to help support the forecasting and reporting of indicators within a number of learning scenarios. Yield curves that reflect natural stand development and the performance of plantations based on Timber Supply Review 2 (TSR2) management assumptions have been developed to support the Morice Base Case Scenario. Special curve sets were developed to support the forecasting of indicators under the forest Productivity, ecosystem-based management and recreation scenarios.The forest productivity scenario curve sets were developed based on the Morice base case curve sets and additional forest productivity studies and data, which were not incorporated in the last Timber Supply Review of the Morice Timber Supply Area.The ecosystem-based management scenario curve sets were developed based on the Morice base case curve sets and include additional curves to account for forest succession in different ecosystem types.
