Scheduling silviculture at Kaingaroa.

J. W. Shirley and R. J. Coker

Procedures to assist the scheduling of radiata pine stands for silvicultural treatment at Kaingaroa State Forest are described. The scheduling system requires field measurements of individual stands to he taken at convenient times and input to a forest data base. Subsequently the data can be accessed at any time and used in a height forecasting system that models the monthly variation in height growth and estimates the expected predominant mean height over a 24-month period. The procedure ensures that forecasts of treatment dates are routinely based on the best and most recent data available.
