Uneven-Aged Management in the Pacific Northwest
Abstract:Naturally occurring uneven-aged stands are uncommon in the productive Douglas-fir region west of the Cascade crest. Eastside, unmanaged interior forests are multistoried with multiple species but overstocked to the point of instability. Lacking both good natural models and reliable experience with uneven-aged forests, regional silviculturists will need many decades to develop and maintain productive uneven-aged stands. With interest in silvicultural alternatives to even-aged management of Pacific Northwest forests increasing dramatically, better how-to information is badly needed.
