Forestry and Wildlife Habitat Management in Central Hardwoods
Abstract:Improvement cutting, or removal of undesirable stems by silvicide or girdling, can foster the integration of forestry and wildlife management in the central hardwood region. Group selection or small, narrow clearcuts are recommended for attaining uneven-aged and even-aged management objectives, respectively. Reforestation of surface mines should continue if a diversity of wildlife is to be maintained. Single-species hardwood plantations should be small, narrow, and adjacent to mixed hardwoods. The diversity of federal, state, and private organizations involved in forest wildlife management and research makes coordination of activities difficult.
