Abstract
The objective of this paper is to use optimized forest planning to address efficiency in the use of forest resources in terms of tons of pulp per ha per year. A long-term model was developed to deliver an adequate mix of genetic material in a yield even flow over the years. Specifically, it intends (i) to demonstrate the adoption costs of such plan and (ii) to compare it with the costs of adapting the industrial process to a flow of non-suitable mix of genetic material. An MCDM (multi-criteria decision-making) technique was used to represent a typical scenario of a Brazilian pulp mill that receives 800,000 m3 year-1 of wood from 20,000 ha, with productivity around 40 m3 ha-1 year-1. Criteria used in the model are pulp production, carbon sequestration, an adequate mix of genetic material, and costs. The results show that the cost of establishing an even-flow on wood density mix is not higher than pulp productivity deficit caused by non-suitable genetic material mix
