Woodstock is a forest modeling system that can be used to perform a wide variety of analyses, including harvest scheduling and wood supply analysis, wildlife management and simulation of forest ecosystems. The system is flexible, allowing you to create models using simulation and linear programming (LP) formulations. Woodstock is a systematic modeling approach that is composed of : a flexible modeling language with which you can describe the forest landscape, the dynamics driving the system and the actions operating on it, the Woodstock editor that you can use to create and run your models and the Woodstock interpreter that runs the model and produces output in the form of graphs and report files.
