USING FOREST VEGETATION SIMULATOR TO AID COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGERS AND STAKEHOLDERS Randall P. Rawls and Edward F. Loewenstein1 1 Graduate Research Assistant and Assistant Professor of Silviculture, respectively, School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences, Duncan Drive, Auburn University, Auburn, AL Author: Randall P. Rawls, Edward F. Loewenstein. We integrated a widely used forest growth and management model, the Forest Vegetation Simulator, with the FSim large wildfire simulator to study how management policies affected future wildfire over 50 years on a million ha study area comprised of a US national forest and adjacent lands.

This book describes an ecological process model of succession that simulates long-term stand dynamics in forests of the Northern Rocky Mountains. This model is used to evaluate the effects of various fire regimes, including prescribed burning and fire suppression, on the vegetation and fuel complex of a simulation stand. We integrated a widely used forest growth and management model, the Forest Vegetation Simulator, with the FSim large wildfire simulator to study how management policies affected future wildfire over 50 years on a million ha study area comprised of a US national forest and adjacent lands. The model leverages decades of research.

The Forest Vegetation Simulator (Donnelly and Johnson, ) is an individual tree, distance-independent growth and yield model, commonly used by the USDA Forest Service to evaluate forest-management treatments. Canopy cover is estimated by summing individual tree crown areas, using species-specific crown radii formulae developed from regional Cited by: Forest growth models are mathematical or computer models to project the future state and yields of forest stands or forest trees, over a time scale of from a few years to many decades.. Structure and function of growth models vary: some are purely empirical, based on the reproduction of past observations, while others explicitly mimic specific processes relative to tree ecophysiology, stand.

The U.S. Forest Service and its everwidening circle of FVS collaborators will continue to improve the suite of models and tools that make up the Forest Vegetation simulator. In a few years it will be worthwhile to convene for a second FVS conference so that we may share our experiences, our lessons learned, our triumphs, and our failures.'.

We evaluated even- and uneven-aged silvicultural options for slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm.) using empirical data and the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) model. Data were collected from a mature unthinned slash pine plantation in a flatwoods site in Florida, and used to simulate six scenarios of even- and uneven-aged silvicultural regimes applied to slash pine stands, including a no Cited by: 6.

U.S. Forest Service Intermountain Region Vol no Proceedings: Forest Vegetation Simulator Conference: Fort Collins, CO, February  To answer these and other similar questions, we need to better understand the impacts of forest management practices on composition, structure and growth of forest vegetation (Problem 2).

Although site resources need not be finite, the purpose of all cultural operations is to reallocate site resources to meet the objectives of the forest manager.

Enhancement of forest growth through silvicultural modification of stand density is one strategy for increasing carbon (C) sequestration.
