The Essentials of a Management Plan for Forest Wildlife in New England
Abstract:The planned management of forest lands involves much more than facilitating the maximum in wood increment for every part of a forest area. It may mean the devotion of certain parts to so-called forest weeds, because of their snperior value for such related forest uses as wildlife, and, in turn, human uses through added recreational facilities. The forester of today and tomorrow is offered a unique opportunity in planning and providing for related uses in their proper relations and proportions. In this report the subcommittee of the New England Section outlines the data, records, and measures requisite for building up and maintaining the productiveness of forest lands in their region as a source of the native game animals and birds.
