Multiple resource management is focus of new technical report

PORTLAND, Ore. March 6, 2008. Forests can serve society in numerous waysby providing timber, habitat for fish and wildlife, and recreational opportunities, for example. Management of these multiple resources is a primary mission of the USDA Forest Service. In May 2007, the agency co-sponsored a biennial workshop in Ketchikan, Alaska, for silviculturists, forest practitioners, and researchers designed to present and discuss new ideas in silviculture and forest management that produce multiple resource benefits.

The 4-day National Silviculture Workshop is now captured in a proceedings published by the Pacific Northwest Research Station. Titled, Integrated Restoration of Forested Ecosystems to Achieve Multiresource Benefits, the publication contains a compilation of many of the silvicultural research and forest management papers and posters presented at the workshop.

The proceedings papers in this report are examples of state-of-the-art research and application in different regions of the country, said Bob Deal, research silviculturist and technical editor of the publication. These papers demonstrate the increasing importance of collaborative efforts and successful partnerships that promote active management to achieve multiple resource forestry management objectives.

An electronic copy of the publication currently is available online at Printed copies will be available March 7.
