Abstract [en]

Optimization models and methods have been used extensively in the forest industry. In this paper we describe the general wood-flow in forestry and a variety of planning problems. These cover planning periods from a fraction of a second to more than one hundred years. The problems are modelled using linear, integer and nonlinear models. Solution methods used depend on the required solution time and include for example dynamic programming, LP methods, branch & bound methods, heuristics and column generation. The importance of modelling and qualitative information is also discussed.
