Developing a Multi-Objective Forest Planning Process with Goal Programming: A Case Study

Nuray Misir and Mehmet Misir

Abstract:
In this study, multi-objective forest management planning process and application were realized in a case study involving faculty research forest. Forest values were quantitatively determined. Goal programming was used in developing multi objective forest management planning model. Forest function considered as forest management objectives (goals) in the model include wood production, soil protection and water production. Four different models containing different goals combinations were developed. Goals were prioritized differently in these models. The goals were fully achieved. Moreover, for the tree goals, the optimum GP solutions presented wanted deviations with respect to the initial target values. Forest function maps were prepared according to models solutions in the end of this study.
