The {STManaged} R package runs the State and transition model for the eastern North American forest, with integrated forest management practices. This package allows you to model the spatially explicit dynamics of four forest states (Boreal, Temperate, Mixed and Regeneration) over space and time. You will be able to set the intensity of four management practices (plantation, harvest, thinning and enrichment) that aim to increase the northward range shift of forest.

Installation

Install the STManaged package with the devtools (or remotes) package:

devtools::install_github("willvieira/STManaged")

On Linux you need to install the ImageMagick++ library (see here), or you can install a version of this package without the animation() function.
