chartInventory Design and Analysis

Prioritize areas to inventory, collect data, inventory data summarization by species, size class, grade and products. Database maintenance tools, training, development and report writing.

Growth and Yield Projection

Project actual or hypothetical stands under various silvicultural regimes and rotation ages. One or more growth models (FPS, Organon, FVS) can be used to compare projections.

Harvest Scheduling

Project whole tree farms into the future under various silvicultural assumptions and schedule stands based on sustained-yield, volume targets or cash-flow targets.

chartNet Present Value

Determine the current value of future income streams (also known as discount cash flow analysis). This typically involves determining current prices and costs, setting an inflation rate, wood appreciation rate and discount rate, growing current inventory to future rotation ages and bringing all future costs and revenues back to present. This is often employed as part of an appraisal or harvest schedule.

Land and Timber Appraisal

Develop estimates of opinion of land and timber value based on three approaches to value (cost, comparative sales and income), analyze higher and better use, and reconcile approaches to determine fair market value.

Statistical Analyses

Estimate sample sizes to achieve objectives, calculate measures of central tendency, accuracy and bias, test hypotheses of two or more samples being different from each other, statistical modeling, mathematical modeling.

Forest Projection and Planning System (FPS)

Installation, database conversion and training to help you fully utilize Forest Biometrics Research Institute inventory software. Testing and calibration of the various components of growth and yield in the FPS system (site index, taper, bark thickness, diameter growth, height growth, survival, small tree growth, large tree growth, etc.)
