Abstract

This papers aims to determine the optimal rotation and the best alternative use of a forest stand when wood price is assumed to follow a Geometrical Brownian Motion and the externality generated by the forest capacity to reduce the level of carbon dioxide in the air is adequately taken into account. It is shown that the decision-making of cutting the trees depends heavily of the use which will be made of the harvested wood. The results of the model indicate what follows: Cet article cherche à déterminer les âges optimaux de coupe d’un peuplement forestier lorsque le prix du bois suit, par hypothèse, un processus de mouvement brownien géométrique et l’externalité qu’engendre une forêt, par sa capacité à réduire le niveau du dioxyde de carbone de l’air et donc l’effet de serre, est adéquatement prise en compte. L’utilisation qui sera faite du bois récolté se révèle déterminante dans la prise de décision de coupe des arbres. Les résultats du modèle indiquent ce qui suit :
