RILSIM, the “Reduced-Impact Logging SIMulator”,
is financial modeling software developed as a service to the international forestry community. RILSIM has been designed to
permit users to rapidly estimate the costs and net revenue associated with logging operations in order to compare short-term
financial costs and returns expected from reduced-impact logging with those expected from conventional logging under
identical local site conditions. The purpose of the software is to help users learn about reduced-impact logging and its
potential financial advantages as compared to conventional logging.
RILSIM is provided free of charge to anyone, anywhere in the world. The current version
is available only as a download; we no longer have financial support to
provide the software on CD-ROM with a printed user's guide.
