Abstract:

The purpose of the international conference from which these proceedings are drawn was to explore relationships between forest management activities and timber quality. Sessions were organized to explore models and simulation methodologies that contribute to an understanding of tree development over time and the ways that management and harvesting activities can influence the quality of timber products recovered from those trees. Five keynote addresses, 29 plenary presentations, and 16 poster presentations covered the full breadth of forest growth and timber quality issues related to forest management. These proceedings comprise 19 papers based on presentations and posters, plus 28 abstracts for presentations whose authors chose not to write full papers. In addition, the proceedings include abstracts and slides from the presentations prepared by three keynote speakers who elected not to write papers for the proceedings. The conference was attended by 75 participants from 19 countries who represented universities, private companies, and government research institutes.
