The tree bucking optimization problem is to determine the optimum cutting pattern of the trees stem in order to maximize their commercial value. The cut pattern depends on the products that are marketed and the characteristics of each tree harvested. This work proposes a new heuristic designed to optimize the assortment of trees during harvesting. The performance of this method was compared to the results obtained in the literature for the meta-heuristics Simulated Annealing and Genetic Algorithm. It was concluded that the proposed heuristic is effective because it generated the best results when compared to the other solution methods.
