Optimum harvesting time and clone choices for eucalyptus growers in Vietnam
This paper investigates the productivity and optimal rotation for economic timber management of Eucalyptus urophylla S.T Blake clones being planted in Northeast Vietnam in Fluvic Gleysol and Ferric Acrisol soils. In the first section of the paper, timber yield functions for all eucalyptus monoculture clones and seedlings are identified. Next, the biological optimum rotation period for maximizing sustained yield is calculated based on the yield functions for each soil type. In the last section, the economically optimal rotation (EOR) lengths for all clones and seedlings planted in the two types of soil are calculated using a modified Faustmann model.
