As resources are exploited around the world, the environment is being affected as never before, and one of the more serious problems is global warming. This paper presents a more comprehensive study of forest management plans in areas such as the Cariboo Forest. First, the paper fit the relationship between tree age and volume using logistic regression, and then estimate the forest's maximum carbon storage ๐ถ๐‘ ๐‘ข๐‘š using the biomass conversion factor method along with a modified Leslie model. In this paper, three aspects of economic benefit, social demand and carbon storage are balanced, and a forest decision-making model based on multi-objective linear programming is established. This paper applies the model to the Cariboo Forest area and optimizes the carbon sequestration assessment model using the first-order decay method (FOD), taking into account the carbon release from wood products.
