Transhipment modelling has been used to identify the optimal location of marketing facilities for many commodities. This approach is being used to analyse timber marketing options for smallholder tree farms on Leyte Island, the Philippines. The model is designed to evaluate the optimal location of smallholder timber processing and the economic benefits of pruning, thinning and improved planting stock. The analysis will provide input to support policy and investment decisions that are critical for smallholder tree farm enterprises
