A comprehensive data base consisting of permanent plot information from four survey years (1959 to 1976) was compiled for the Cloquet Forestry Center. Corresponding covertype data was developed and covertype maps were drafted. A distance-independent individual-tree-based growth model (MFPS) was used to project growth and yield for covertypes, with and without management. Management projections involved harvest by clearcut and subsequent regeneraton. Covertype summary table of initial inventories and projection results were produced by SUMREP, a computer program containing whole-tree biomass and product volume functions. Potential income from predicted first decade harvest of the red pine covertype is presented.
