Forestry Planning and Scheduling

Improve efficiency, decisions and performance

Optimize all facets of strategic, tactical and S&OP forest management planning to balance priorities and achieve sustainable growth.

Balance sustainability and growth

Forestry is a complex and dynamic business, requiring high-impact decision-making. Remsoft’s modular forestry planning and scheduling solutions use optimization modeling to help you balance priorities, meet environmental requirements, and achieve business objectives. Using advanced analytics, you can maximize data intelligence to uncover the best options for increasing productivity, reducing risk and improving performance.

Improve performance at every level

Remsoft planning analytics solutions use optimization modeling to solve complex planning challenges over all time horizons – from long-term strategic to mid-term tactical and short-term sales and operational scheduling. Every solution is purpose-built for forestry, with integrated modeling, deep analysis and decision support capabilities to improve decisions and performance at every level.

  • Visualize and analyze scenarios to solve challenges at every level of forestry planning and scheduling
  • Make fact-based decisions with optimization models that transform data into actionable insights
  • Achieve sustainability, performance, and growth objectives with holistic and intelligent planning

Optimize lifecycle forestry planning and scheduling


Using optimization analytics, you can improve decision-making, resource and asset management.

Mathematical optimization modeling

Empower decision-makers with robust integrated analytics capabilities using linear and integer programming, and heuristic simulations. Build, maintain, and deploy  mathematical optimization models based on your planning and scheduling needs.  Easily analyze all data with enhanced visualizations. Iterate models as new data is available and adjust them as situations change.

Flexible problem solving

Analyze forest planning dynamics across many spatial and temporal ranges to understand and assess complex business challenges. Solve short to long-term problems where sequencing and assignment of an optimal timing is fundamental to performant decision-making. Specify interval constraints and adjust parameters to maximize value and minimize costs.

Scenario and capacity analysis

Make transparent, data-driven decisions through strong scenario, trade-off and what-if analyses. Conduct deep analyses to optimize plans and schedules, allocate resources, and understand the opportunity cost of individual constraints. Assess the impact of changing resources levels on medium- and long-term financial performance to help prioritize resource investments.

Add capabilities based on your needs

We can help you bridge the gap between strategy, tactics and operations with purpose-built forestry planning analytics software powered by Remsoft’s Woodstock Optimization Studio.

Environmental and Policy

Optimize strategies to comply with fluid environmental policies and assess the impact of policy changes on forest values over time.

Carbon Management

Track carbon and measure the impact of forest management activities on the carbon balance.

Risk Mitigation

Analyze and mitigate the impact of market events and natural disturbances to help manage risk as part your forest planning process.

Silviculture Planning

Optimize silviculture scheduling and budgeting to maintain the health, quality and growth of your forest into the future while also managing costs.  

Harvest Scheduling

Create an optimal schedule for harvest and silviculture activities to maximize objectives, such as net present value and habitat conservation.

Road Planning

Improve road activity planning decisions, aligning capital investments and maintenance with harvest and delivery decisions in one holistic view.

Resource Allocation

Optimize decisions on how to efficiently allocate your finite resources to maximize business performance.

Wood Flow and Delivery

Optimize forestry supply chain activities to allocate the right product from the right location to the right customer at the right time.
