Silviculture Alternatives for the Pacific NW
This virtual workshop series convened industry leaders to discuss (1) how alternative silviculture systems can be applied to support a wide range of landowner goals, and (2) how to keep silviculture vision synced with operations reality - all the way through the harvest process. Navigate this self-paced workshop that captured live discussions through four (4) main sessions: Assessing Units and Projects, Pre-Operations Planning, Operations, and Financial Trade-offs and Good Neighbor Outreach. Silviculture prescriptions that are ecologically, economically, and socially sound are essential for the future of forestry. This workshop can help enhance your understanding of the daily realities of loggers, how to better anticipate issues, and further improve communications and effectiveness.
