Regional Guides to Ecological Forestry PDF Print E-mail

The goal of the regional guides on ecological forestry is to provide science and insight at as local a level as possible in order to assist foresters in creating site specific silvicultural prescriptions. For each region or locality we would like to be able to present:

  • Examples of ecological forest management from the region.
  • Brief summary of research on the central issues facing foresters.
  • Any tools or web sites particularly useful for the region.
