dc.description.abstract Several extensions to the procedure for forest-level harvest scheduling in the presence of the risk of fire, developed by Reed and Errico (1985), are considered. They include:- (i) the possibility of multiple timber types and regeneration options, (ii) the possibility of salvage after a fire, (iii) the problem of accessibility, and (iv) the inclusion of recovery costs. In addition, a new method of solving the deterministic scheduling problem by linear programming is considered. This new method is computationally more efficient. Moreover, it allows for the simple determination of the present net worth of hectares of forest in the whole-forest context, and can easily handle the problem of a changing land base. The use of terminal payoffs is shown to result in a considerable reduction in the size of the LP problem. en
