This course establishes the economic foundation of forest management and it covers the most fundamental decisions forest managers make in managing forests for multiple-uses such as timber production or wildlife habitat preservation. We will discuss the most common tools that can aid making these decisions. These tools include financial analysis, forest regulation, linear-, integer-, and multiple-objective programming. The students will learn how to select the most appropriate tools for various situations, how to use them, and how to interpret the results these tools provide.
