Abstract: This study evaluated the economic feasibility of two new treatments of selection cutting, developed for the irregular softwood forests of Quebec (Canada). This economic feasibility was compared to the profitability of the clear cut with advance growth protection, cover a horizon superior to 200 years, and consider the majority of the operation costs, until the final products (lumber and chips). The results show that the two selection cuttings will allow constant revenues and costs over time, and also that, in the future, they will be economically more attractive than clear cuts, considering our hypothesis. The financial study comparing the two selection cuttings to clear cut, includes Monte Carlo simulations. This approach allows considering uncertainties of variables, their interactions, and their impacts on profitability. So, the net present values are associated with a distribution of probabilities.
