Media reviews

"This book is based on the research, lectures and real-life experiences of authors who all originate from Finland. [...] This book presents the advances and progress in the use of OR in forestry management over the last forty to fifty years. The substantial growth in the range of techniques, methods and approaches extensively shown through examples in the book Decision Support for Forest Management, should put forest managers and decision makers well equipped to face this challenge."
– Hans W. Ittmann, IFORS News, Vol. 11 (1), March, 2017

Review of the first edition:

"It introduces many numerical techniques, and a fairly advanced level of knowledge [...] . If today's forest managers are to successfully manage the multiple values in a forest, they need to be aware of the decision support techniques that are available to them, and this book will certainly provide that information. Forestry students also need to know about these techniques if they wish to become successful forest managers [...] . It can therefore be recommended to all those involved in forest management."
– John Innes, International Forestry Review, Vol. 10 (4), 2008
