Checkered Forest Arrangement Method

This method is aimed at the most sustainable and profitable forest management, as well as the reduction of forest fires.

The essence of the method consists in dividing the forest into equal quarters and their subsequent shift when the stands reach their ripedity.

When carrying out quarterly shifts, cuttings are carried out in quarters with ripe stands, and quarters with growing stands are left for growing. Therefore, in order to implement the transition to this forest arrangement, it is necessary to cut down all ripe trees in the quarters that will be assigned the status of a growing forest, and in the quarters that will be assigned the status of a ripe forest, carry out forestry work until the ripeness of quarters with a growing forest is reached.

Quarterly lines shifts are made in the direction of the Coriolis force to take advantage of it.

This method also takes into account the characteristics of climatic zones and stands growing in them.

Because the average age of stands is different for each line of the quarters, the time it takes for stands to reach ripedity will also vary depending on the latitude at which the line of the quarters is located, as well as the time between shifts of the quarters will be different for each individual quarterly line.

The frequency of quarterly shifts is determined by the average age of all stands located in the same quarterly line.
