FORESTRY MANAGEMENT ASSISTANCE

INTRODUCTION

The Forest Management Assistance program is comprised of seven parts. Each part
or option is a module which functions independently of the others. The program helps
the landowner locate necessary assistance for private forestry operations by providing
names, addresses, and other pertinent information about the following:

1. Timber buyers
2. Timber loggers
3. Florida Division of Forestry offices and foresters
4. Forestry consultants
5. Private industry with landowner assistance programs
6. Nurseries that supply seedlings
7. Stores that sell seed for native plants (which are a source of food for
wildlife)

All information furnished by this program will be in the form of lists. These lists
are not guaranteed to be complete. If a user finds information that is incomplete or
incorrect please contact:

The operation of each module of this program are shown in Figures 1-7. The
instructions on how to use the program are included in the section Program Operation.
The material that appears on the screen is highlighted.

Timber Buyers provides the user with the names, addresses and phone numbers of
buyers that are listed in directories published by the Florida Division of Forestry.
The user must provide the following information:

1. The district in which the forest is located
2. The dominant species to be sold
3. The major product (i.e. sawtimber, pulpwood)

If the user does not know the appropriate district, the program will list the districts
by county. The total list is separated into 3 segments. When a segment is displayed,
the user may select the district number. The species request is straight-forward. It
lists several forest species and asks which species the user has to sell. The product
type request is based on tree size since size generally determines product
alternatives.

The flow chart for this module is shown in Figure 1.

Consulting Foresters provides the user with names, addresses and phone numbers of
consulting foresters by region. The lists are taken from the directory published by
the Florida Chapter of the Association of Consulting Foresters. The regional lists
include:

1. Northwest Florida
2. Northeast Florida
3. South Florida

There is not a regional list by counties as in previous modules. The user is
expected to know the appropriate region.

When a consultant is listed, there is an option for the user to view more
information on that consultant. This option will list the mailing address of the
consultant and any branch offices, the owner's education, experience and specialties,
and geographic area in which the consultant is willing to work. To assure that the
first consultant on each list does not have an advantage over others, the user is not
allowed to leave a list until all consultants on that list are shown.

The flow chart for the consulting foresters is shown in Figure 4.

Private Industry provides the user with the names, addresses and phone numbers of the
firms which offer some form of forest management assistance to private landowners. The
information for this program was obtained from the "Forest Landowner Assistance Guide"
and is published by the Southern Forest Products Association.

Several firms in Florida will provide assistance to landowners before and after a
timber sale, or prior to regeneration. The types of assistance, fees, or contractual
agreements will differ. The types of assistance, services, or fees are not listed;
therefore the user should contact the company directly for this information.

The user will need to provide the location of the land by selecting one of the
following regions:

1. Northwest Florida
2. Northeast Florida
3. South Florida

There is not a regional list by counties as in previous modules. The user is
encouraged to run the program a second time and select another region if there is any
doubt regarding the regional location of the land.

The flow chart for this module is shown in Figure 5.

PROGRAM OPERATION



Signing on to the Computer

The program is designed for the VAX computing system manufactured by
the Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) but is not limited to DEC
equipment. A computer terminal with telephone hookup (modem) is required. If
peripheral equipment such as hard copy printer are used, then the signal transmission
type between terminal and printer must be compatible (serial or parallel.)

Before using the terminal an account must be established with the
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) Extension Computer Network in
Gainesville.

Use the following procedure to access the VAX computer:

1. Set the terminal to FULL DUPLEX.

2. Set the modem to FULL DUPLEX.

3. Dial (904) 392-5750 (for high-speed or 1200 baud terminals) or 392-5760 (for
low-speed or 300 baud terminals) to access the IFAS VAX computer.

4. When the "READY" light appears on the coupler, press the terminal's carriage
return (CR). The computer will respond "USERNAME" to which you will type
your User's name (usually 3 letters) and press (CR).

5. The computer will respond "PASSWORD" to which you will type your password and
press (CR).

6. When you see the message "WELCOME TO VAX/VMS..." you are signed on to the
IFAS VAX system successfully.

7. You should now see a "$" at the left margin of the bottom line on the
terminal screen or printer. To the right of the "$" is a blinking cursor
character. You now type "MENU" to access the IFAS Computer Network Menu
System.

8. The Forestry Information System (FORINSY) is listed as program #9 on the main
IFAS menu. After the instruction "PROGRAM NUMBER:" appears on your terminal
type in "9." The Forestry Management Assistance program is one portion of
FOR INSY.

9. The computer responds to your selection by listing 5 options as illustrated
below to assist you with the program. You should type in "102" after the
prompt "PROGRAM OPTION" to execute the Forestry Information System. You will
be ready to select the Forestry Management Assistance program after
proceeding through the preliminary menu.

following introduction and command:


TIMBER BUYERS

This is a list of the people in your area who buy timber. This list comes from
the directories of Florida's wood using industries published by the Division of
Forestry. These lists are complete to the best of our knowledge and any omissions are
purely unintentional. If you believe you should be on this list, please contact the
School of Forest Resources and Conservation at the University of Florida. The list is
not intended to be an endorsement of any particular buyer; it is intended only to
inform you of the timber buyers in your area.
[Please hit C to continue, or 0 to leave the program.]



The user must type in a C to make the program continue from here. A carriage return
alone will not suffice.



The Division of Forestry has divided the state into eleven planning districts. IF
you know your planning district enter its number; if you do not know your district,
enter an L for a list of the counties in each district. To leave the program, enter
a 0.
[Please enter district number, L, or 0.]



If the user chooses to type in a district number, the following portion of the
program will be bypassed and the questions for species and product type will be asked:
If the user needs to view this list, he must remember that the selection he makes must
be from the portion of the list on display. If the user passes the selection he wishes
to make, he must exit the program and re-enter it, or go through the list for another
district (a South Florida district would be a good choice--they tend to be smaller).
Then the user may go back through the list again or type in his district number.

HOW TO ORDER BARE-ROOT TREE SEEDLINGS

Florida's bare-root tree seedling planting season begins early each December and

1984 through February 11, 1985.

Your orders should be received by September 15, when all orders will be filled
based on available seedlings. Orders received after September 15 will be filled until
the seedling supply is exhausted.

Order forms for bare-root seedlings are available from offices of the Florida
Division of Forestry, the Agricultural Extension Service, the Soil Conservation Service
(SCS), and the Agricultural Stabilization Service (SCS), and the Agricultural
Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS).

You must order at least 25 seedlings of any species. However, you will be charged
the price per thousand for orders of less than one thousand seedlings. You may order
