This page describes several validation tests and applications of the model for both short and long-term projections of stand growth.

The following dataset are currently being used to validate MGM:
- SRD Old Growth PSP's
- SRD Stand Dynamic System Plots (SDS)
- WESBOGY Long Term Study (LTS)
- Saskatchewan PSP's
- Saskatchewan MS - 153 SW Release Study
- Hotchkiss Understory Protection Study
A manuscript titled "The validation and evaluation of the Mixedwood Growth Model (MGM) for use in forest management decision making" has been submitted to the Forestry Chronicle for review.
