Management for Old Growth Characteristics

December 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Register December 16, 2021 Noon - 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time This webinar with Dr. Bill Keeton will focus on approaches and strategies managers can use to encourage the development of late successional or old growth characteristics. Because old growth forests are rare and many species depend on them, managers may seek to help younger forests hold attributes of older forests faster than nature can on its own. Scientists have experimented with structural complexity enhancement techniques such as encouraging the growth…

Accelerating the development of structural complexity

January 27, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Accelerating the development of structural complexity: a case study from Ellsworth Creek Preserve, Washington. Register January 27, 2021 Noon - 1:00 p.m. PT Presenters: Dr Van Kane, Caden Chamberlain, University of Washington, and Michael Case, The Nature Conservancy. Restoration treatments can theoretically accelerate the development of structural complexity in simplified forest stands. New research provides insights into the  effects of restoration treatments on the structural complexity of forest stands in the Ellsworth Creek Preserve in southwestern Washington 10 years post-treatment.…

Managing for the parts of the sum (webinar)

February 24, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Managing for the parts of the sum: restoration treatments to accelerate late successional structures Register February 24, 2022 Noon - 1 p.m. Pacific Time Presenter: Dr. Klaus Puettmann, Oregon State University This webinar highlights results from various large-scale, long-term studies. General vegetation response trends after restoration treatments were highly predictable, but most responses were spatially very variable. Thus, accounting for the variability in initial conditions at neighborhood and stand scales in the prescription of restoration treatments is crucial for efficient…
