Stanley is harvest block scheduling software that goes beyond long-term forest management planning to on-the-ground, blocked harvest schedules. Stanley automates the process of developing a spatial harvest plan. It's easy to use, works with harvest units developed by any means and with geographic information obtainable from most common GIS packages. Stanley includes an integrated set of tools for generating stand (polygon) description lists, identifying adjacent stands, finding the best solution, and previewing and editing solutions. Stanley accounts for any regulation or constraint that may have to be addressed. It deals easily with greenup (adjacency) delays, limitations on opening size (clear cuts), visual quality initiatives and other Sustainable Forestry Implementation Guidelines.
