Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the use of Linear Programming (LP) and other mathematical procedures to evaluate watershed and perpetuity constraints on forest land use for a selected scenario in Terengganu, Peninsular Malaysia. The paper describes the system of modelling and forecasting estimates of potential timber growth, forest harvest and inventory for use in planning with environmental considerations. The LP model provided a range of feasible solutions for decision making. Equations were derived for the model to show interaction of sedimentation due to road construction, timber harvesting, and other related forest management activities. Sensitivity analysis was used to test model behavior. A literature review provided information to supplement the findings gathered from simulation of the linear programming problem. The model further evaluated using theoretical, mathematical and observational procedures. Results indicate the constraining effects of sedimentation upon forest revenues when sedimentation is allowed to vary within the feasible region of the model (i.e., from 600,000 m3/decade up to 1,150,000 m3/decade.
