Red-Cockaded Woodpecker Habitat and Timber Management: Production Possibilities

Buy Article:


To mitigate possible negative effects that financial timber rotations for southern pine may have on habitat requirements for red-cockaded woodpeckers, alternative management strategies are investigated using multiple objective linear programming (MOLP). Time streams of timber and habitat are examined. The consequence of providing areas with potential cavity trees on production of timber is explored. Management actions which immediately set aside large areas of land for woodpecker habitat without concern for future changes can lead to short-term increases in habitat that are followed by habitat declines after several decades. Management actions designed to restructure the forest to achieve a long-term sustainable habitat level may initially have a slower increase in habitat, but without subsequent declines. South. J. Appl. For. 14(1):6-12
