The present study considers the risk of fire as an endogenous component in a stand management optimisation problem for even-aged Pinus nigra Arn. stands in Catalonia (North-east Spain). A simulation-optimisation system, RODAL, was used to determine the optimal stand management when maximal soil expectation value (SEV) was the objective. This system was modified to include fire occurrence and post-fire tree survival models.
