Elaboration of Ideal Forest Models for the Promotion of CBFM in Dak Lak provinceCase Study Report

In the context of community forestry, this standard aims at satisfying the demand of the forest user in terms of forest products while at the same time ensuring sustainability of the forest resource. Consequently, the standard does not aim at reflecting a potential natural forest structure as desired in special-use forests like national parks or nature reserves but to develop an adapted forest structure combining production and protection functions at the same time. . Many mixed stands with a continuous series of age classes and continuous recruitment by natural regeneration illustrate a diameter distribution in which each diameter-class has fewer stems than the adjoining, smaller diameter-class (Philip 1994). Due to the ability to represent natural forest stands, negative exponential functions resembling ideal natural forests, similarly providing protection and production functions are prepared for each forest type separately. Respective ideal stand models are compared against stem number-diameter distributions obtained via participatory forest inventories to facilitate the identification of management options for the respective forest stand.
