Linear programming techniques were applied in the development of an even-aged harvest scheduling model for the Flathead Indian Reservation in western Montana. Stand types depicting the various size and condition of the even-aged forest strata served as the principle decision variables. High and moderate site qualifiers were also applied. Silvicultural treatments, yield projections, and economic forecasts comprised the necessary inputs. A 120 year time horizon depicted the planning horizon.
