  2. An Evaluation of the Use of “Gentan” Probabilities in Forestry Planning

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    An evaluation of Suzuki's concept of Gentan probabilities is presented. Model fitting is discussed in some detail. It is shown that the Gentan method is suitable only for forests that are at least close to normality.
  3. Comparison of Three Stem Profile Equations for <em>Quercus robur</em> L.

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Stem profile equations were developed for Quercus robur using height up to the crown base in lieu of total height. Diameter at the crown base was subtracted from each measured stem diameter so that the transformed diameter at crown base...

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The method of network analysis was applied in annual planning, in afforestation planning and in organising working plan activities. Network analysis may be used to advantage in a variety of forestry planning problems, particularly in complex project plans. It is...
  6. The Design of Computer-based Forestry Planning Systems

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The article deals with the design of computer-based forestry planning systems. A conceptual framework would be useful to any forestry firm intending to develop its own planning system, which is preferable to purchasing software from an outside source.
