FFR Forecaster provides the forest manager with tools to create and explore alternative forest management plans. Forest planners can determine the best management strategies for their business by creating scenarios of management options and simulating the outcomes. Silvicultural planners can implement plans correctly by having operations scheduled on time. Resource analysts can manage the yields from the forest to best meet business requirements by basing their decisions on log yields based on simulated qualities at the time of harvest.
Forecaster provides the ability to predict the impacts of site, silviculture and genetics on tree and branch growth and wood properties, and hence on wood value, internal rate of return and net present value.
Forecaster can be efficiently integrated with other parts of forest management and planning systems or it can be a convenient stand-alone application, linking to Microsoft Office applications.
