This articles looks at techniques and strategies for the best growth and quality of forests. Thinning, which is the removal of vegetation to allow for growth of other plants or trees, is commonly used in forest production. This study aims to develop a system to determine how many trees of dominant height per hectare can sustain the forest. Data was provided by a number of forestry companies.
