The paper describes modelling of forest development and its utilisation for forest management planning, specifically modelling of growth mensurational variables of the two main commercial species – spruce and beech. Further, utilisation of growth simulator SILVA 2.2 for modelling the tending felling is described, focusing on data collection and main outputs of the modelling. Researched methodology was applied to a sample forest near the Racková municipality, property of Kroměříž Municipal Forests.Keywords:
