Case Study: "Silviculture Alternatives for the Pacific Northwest"

Program Type - Ecosystem Optimization

Sponsors - U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Oregon Forest Resources Institute

Circumstance - There are five types of large forest landowners.  Each handles harvest and regeneration in its own unique way – historically working in isolation from the others.  The new imperative to manage forests on a landscape scale (across property lines) means that they all have to collaborate as never before.  

Objective - Enable line managers and individual contributors to understand where the other landowner types are the same, where they’re different, and why.

Lasting Value – This 2017 series is required viewing for new arrivals in all PNW forest types.  The cross-sector understandings from “Silviculture Alternatives” are essential skills for doing the work of managing multi-owner landscapes.  (see "Best Practices" Success Story)
