OFRI Webinar - Managing Leave Trees in the Pacific Northwest
When planning to harvest timber, forest landowners and managers often wonder how many trees they should leave standing on the landscape and in which locations to maximize the benefit they provide to wildlife once logging is completed. Highlighted will be the latest scientific research on the importance of these leave trees, as well as other “retained structures” such as large stumps, downed wood and standing dead trees, or snags.
Presenters: Gary Roloff, a professor and chairman of the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Michigan State University, and Jake Verschuyl, director of forestry research in the western U.S. and British Columbia for the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement.
