Description

To identify the highest priorities for silviculture research in Maine, the authors of this report quantified the absolute and relative influence of future silvicultural investments (tree planting, herbicide application, and PCT) and commercial thinning on projected harvest levels and future wood supplies in Maine. They also quantified the absolute and relative importance of the growth and yield assumptions (via sensitivity analysis) used in estimating the influence of these silvicultural treatments on projected harvest levels and future wood supplies in Maine; and based on the absolute and relative importance of the growth and yield assumptions and on the influence of differing levels of future investment, they ranked which areas of silviculture research are likely to be most important for improving Maine’s future wood supply.
