A Method of Determining the Optimal Age of Felling

A. M. Omelko


A simple and efficient method for calculation of the best felling age for tree stands of a certain species is proposed. At the first stage, the method presupposes an approximation of tabulated data on the growth time course with respect to some model equation. At the second stage, the moment of culmination of the average increment of reserves is found analytically, which represents the optimal felling time. The method is illustrated with a calculation of felling times for spruce stands of the Primorye region.
