Imagine a company has just purchased a large parcel of land with significant acreage of mixed hardwood-pine forests, but the company wants to clear the land and plant it entirely to another species. You are part of a team employed by the company and tasked with determining the best management strategy to maximize forestry products and rates of return. Forestry management students at The Ohio State University were given this real-world scenario as part of their final project in the ENR 5320 Forest Management course taught by Roger Williams, associate professor of forest ecosystem analysis and management in the School of Environment and Natural Resources.
The ENR 5320 Forest Management Class during spring semester 2017 conducted a competition to develop the best forest management strategy. Students were presented with a real world scenario and challenged to identify the best management strategy to maximize forest products and rates of return.
