The forecaster Calculator is a simple forest simulation tool for radiata pine and Douglas-fir in New Zealand. It simulates the tree growth and the log products produced at a single clearfell age on a per hectare basis.
Its target audience is primarily the small woodlot owner wishing to calculate a rough estimate of the volume and log product mix on a particular site at a particular age.
The Forecaster Calculator is built using the same set of models as the Forecaster desktop application which is widely used by the Forest Industry for yield table generation (i.e. log product volumes by age), regime evaluation and silvicultural scheduling.
