In the conditions of climate and physiography under which they grow, as well as in species composition and other properties, Alaska's interior forests are similar to those found in the northern United States, Canada, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. Productivity is adequate for forestry to be considered a legitimate land use. Current research indicates that the stands can be regenerated. Silvicultural practices developed in other northern forests should be evaluated to determine their applicability in the taiga.
