The Harvesting Decisions When a Standing Forest with Multiple Age-Classes Has Value
AbstractA solution is demonstrated to an infinite-horizon, discrete-time utility model describing the consumption and cutting behavior of a nonindustrial private landowner who is managing a multiple age-class forest and who values both consumption derived from harvesting the trees and amenity derived from the standing trees. A policy rule is derived to attain a normal forest from any initial age-class distribution. It is demonstrated that a noncyclical forest allowing a constant periodic harvest is typically not a normal forest. Therefore, an even-flow timber harvesting is not tied to the existence of a normal forest structure. Copyright 2005, Oxford University Press.
