A nonreserve-based landscape plan for developing mature forest habitat has been developed for the Blodgett Forest, one of the research forest properties of Oregon State University. Intended to provide a study and demonstration site for an alternative to fixed reserves, the plan calls for efficiently achieving and maintaining both mature forest and income. The forest goals include a mature forest acreage target, a mature forest landscape connectivity goal, a conversion time goal, and a net income goal. Spatial issues required development of a new harvest scheduling algorithm.
