The Regional Vegetation Management Model


About RVMM ...

The RVMM project was initiated by the U.S. Forest Service and Oregon State University in 1990 to develop a decision support tool for forest managers to decide where, when, and how to control associated vegetation in young Douglas-fir plantations in the Pacific Northwest. RVMM provides tree-level and stand-level predictions of growth and yield for Douglas-fir; and, associated conifers, hardwoods, shrubs, and herbaceous species in the Coast Range and Cascade Mountains of Oregon and Washington. The model is compatible with existing rotation-age growth models (e.g., ORGANON, FVS/PROGNOSIS, SPS) and provides a link between young-stand response to vegetation management and rotation-age stand structure.

RVMM is PC-based and runs under Windows 3.1 or Windows 95/NT.

Two versions of RVMM have been developed: tree-level (individual-tree) and stand-level. The stand-level version will be available in the near future.
