Forest Yield Analysis
Forecast yields by recoverable logtype (often referred to MARVL “Method of Assessing Recoverable Volume by LogType”)
Apply Height and DBH Models
Using Height vs Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) models to apply individual heights across a sample population of trees
Grow and Project Tree Volume
Projecting tree volume and growth to generate yield tables to assist in the decision making process for harvest, valuation and estate modelling.
Buck Trees into Logs
Trees can be cut to logs accounting for stumpage and breakage waste
Yield Table Generator
YTGen is software for generating yield estimates in a production forestry context. It combines the process of growing and projecting tree volumes with log bucking alogorithms to model tree merchandising through to log products, providing data to assist in decision making.
Key Design Philosophies
- Do a few things well: frow trees, cut them up and add them up.
- Separate yield generation from inventory data collection.
- Separate yield generation from decision support.
- Intergrate well with upstream and downstream processes.
