Abstract Forest resource use has traditionally been multifaceted. In order to ensure that these resources continue to be available for use by current and future generations, sustainable management practices are essential for striking a balance between the varied and often competing demands associated with forest use. This has meant that analysis incorporate specific objectives and considerations aimed at minimizing the impacts of forest activities. One such management planning approach has been the inclusion of spatial restrictions in harvest scheduling analysis. This article reviews two basic harvest scheduling models which may be used for imposing spatial restrictions. Distinctions between the alternative methods are highlighted and operational considerations are discussed. This article establishes and outlines priority areas for future harvest scheduling research.
