TreeGrOSS was started as an Open Source project of the department of Growth and Yield of the Forest Research Station of Lower Saxony in Germany. In 1990 there has been a major shift in Lower Saxony's silvicultural policy. This mainly means an increase in the percentage of hardwoods, natural regeneration instead of clear cutting, more mixed species stands and well structured stands. Consequently the Growth and Yield Department shifted the focus of research from the stand to the tree level and started working on a forest growth model based on single tree information of the experimental plots which a scattered over Northwest Germany. For practical application the forest growth model was integrated into a computer program to allow forest growth simulation. This program has been updated and extended in the past. It is used by the Forest Service and the public mainly for stand analysis, silvicultural strategy development, education and presentation. A special version is used to analyze and forecast permanent plot inventory.\n\nThe interest, the use and the demands of users have reached a point where the small development team of the forest growth simulator BWINPro is tied up by answering questions and making minor changes to optimize the program for special users. In order to get back to further development of additional packages the team has decided to start the Open Source project TreeGrOSS. This should enable users to optimize the program for there needs, verify the code, and -very important- integrate the growth model into company software. Since there has been a lot of interest in the growth simulator by forester's and researchers from other countries the Java code is documented in English. This hopefully will allow to use TreeGrOSS as an example or frame to save programming effort.\n\nAs a programming language Java was chosen. Java is an easy to learn and object oriented languages. Java programs are platform independent and do run on nearly all modern computer operating systems like, Windows, MacOS, Linux and Unix. In form of Java applets the programs can be also based on the internet. Another advantage of using the Java language is that the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SDK) is provided at no costs by Sun Microsystems and that there is no need for an expensive development environment. In addition to the J2SDK you will only need a normal text editor. On the internet you can find a lot of free and helpful java programming examples and programing tutorials. So there is even for foresters no excuse, everybody can make use of the TreeGrOSS package.\n\n\n\n
When people finally started to realize that the single tree model BWINPro was more useful than the old yiedl tables, they wanted to use the model for more and more applications. At first BWINPro was used as a research tool. Then it got used for the development of forest strategies, forest planning, education, visualisation and landscape planning. By constantly adding new functions to satisfy the needs of the different users the the original growth model software BWINPro had become so complex that it was not possible anymore to develope it further. Consequently the TreeGrOSS project was started to convert the program into a component and object oriented software. Switching from ~Delphi-Pascal to Java was one step to split the software in packages and work more object oriented.\n\nThe major package is ''treegross.base'' holding all classes and methods for the forest simulation. The structure of this package is oriented on the single tree model for Northwest Germany. However by introducing interface classes for the main modeling processes and parameters like crown base, crown width, growth, mortality, ingrowth, etc. it is possible to plug in other regional models which might differ in species and their coefficients and even in functions used for modeling. In fact nearly every forest growth model can be integrated and profit from treegross packages. It is relatively easy to use the treegross.base package for an own software project. How this is done will be later shown in the documentation. \n\nThe additional packages treegross.standsimulation, treegross.stand3D, treegross.database and treegross.ksp make use of the base package and either provide an user interface, a 3 D visualisation, a data access or a special analysis tool. \n\n

Statistical forest growth models on a single tree basis are usually valid only for the region where the data to fit the model was collected. For the practical application of such a model a computer program is needed. Because such programs give the opportunity to simulate the growth of forest stands, they are are called forest growth simulators. The development of a forest growth simulator however takes quiet an effort. Consequently the TreeGrOSS software concept was developed in a way which allows to use this software for more than one forest growth model. This was achieved by introducing so called adapter or interface classes into the program. The adapter classes have empty standardized methods which correspond with the methods of the individual methods of the regional growth model. Using these interface classes it is relatively easy to plug in a growth model for another region into the software. So far three plugins for Alnus in Northeast Germany, Pines in El Salto (Mexico) and for Pine in Brandenburg have been published. \n\nAt the current development level of the program there are Interfaces for:\n* Competition\n* Crown base\n* Crown width\n* Growth\n* Mortality\n* Site index\n* Taper functions\n* Volume functions\n* Decay of dead wood\n\nIn most cases the tree or stand object is an input parameter of the interface method. That way all information about the tree and stand can be accessed in the methods. This offers possibility to use not only different coefficients but also integrate own functions and algorithms into the program.
The TreeGrOSS Source code is currently used for several software Products:\n\n* ForestSimulatorBWINPro for simulation of silvicultural strategies and the analysis single stands\n* WaldPlaner for the simulation and natural planning of a forest enterprise\n* SimWald a game to show the effects of siviculture to forest functions\n* VIS2006 a research plot analysis used by the nw-fva\n\nThe main ideas and needs for new code result from the programm ForestSimulatorBWINPro.
* The TreeGrOSS project is currently extended by classes to simulate the debris (dead) wood. The new class ~PlugInDecay is the adapter for the regional decay models. The class ~DecayOfRegion handles how the debris wood is processed during the simulation. The models need more testing and will be available soon.
''Simwald'' is a game which shows the forest dynamics and the effects of silvicultural treatments to forest functions. It has been used on several exhibts.\n\nMore information: http://www.nw-fva.de/index.php?id=217

TreeGrOSS (''Tree Gr''rowth ''O''pen ''S''ource ''S''oftware) is a Java based software package to analyse and forecast the developement of forest stands. The TreeGrOSS software was developed and is maintained by the Northwestern German Forest Research Station ([[NW-FVA|http://www.nw-fva.de]] ) in Göttingen. \n\nIt can be used for forest \n* analysis\n* silvicultural scenario analysis\n* forest inventory prognosis\n* forest stand visualisation\n* and forest education.\n\nSince TreeGrOSS is an open project everybody can join it, use the software and fit the software to his or her needs. The SourceCode is available for download and therefore TreeGrOSS is no black box like many other software. The project profits from the comments, suggestions, critical remarks and the detection of errors by users. It makes it's greates progress by the cooperation of forest scientists. This is also the reason why the documentation of TreeGrOSS is in English language.\n\nCurrently the software package TreeGrOSS is enhanced in [[cooperation]] with several partners.

''Versuchflächeninformationssystem''\n\nThe VIS2006 is an Informationssystem for Growth and Yield Experiment Plots. It is developed for the NW-FVA, but could be also used for other institutions. VIS2006 is based on the TreeGrOSS project and programmed in Java. It is connected to an MySQL-Database which holds the data of the experiment plots. VIS2006 can be also used to produce and handle temporary copies of single growth and yield experiments. These temporary copies are stored in an Access data file. VIS2006 is used for:\n* General information about the experimental plots\n* Data entry\n* Data extraction\n* Data correction\n* Standard evaluation of experiment plots\n* Stem map display and editing\n\nIf you are interested in VIS2006 contact the NW-FVA.
The Waldplaner is a software program to analyse the sustainability of forest functions on a forest enterprise level. With the program you can forecast the development of your stands under different silvicultural strategies and compare these. \n\nFor ''more information'' see: http://www.nw-fva.de/index.php?id=216\nor get in contact with the [[NW-FVA|http://www.nw-fva.de]]
The treegross.base package holds the main classes of the forest growth simulator and provides the adapter classes for the plug-in of growth models of other regions. The default growth model is the model for Northwest Germany of the [[NW-FVA|http://www.nw-fva.de]] often referred to under the name ~BWINPro. The treegross concept is stand or plot based. Therefore the major class which holds all information is the class Stand.java\n\nMain classes of the treegross.base package\n\n* Stand.java\n** Tree.java
