Silviculture and Ecology of Western U.S. Forests

Oregon State University Press
Silviculture, once regarded solely as reforestation and growing trees
for timber, is understood today as also maintaining forest health,
reducing fire potential, benefitting wildlife and aesthetics, and
ensuring multiple options for the future against the uncertainties of a
changing climate. Silviculture and Ecology of Western U.S. Forests,
Second Edition,
is a text for students, professional forest
managers, and scientists that summarizes both early and contemporary
research and principles relevant to the silviculture, ecology, and
multi-purpose management of western U. S. forests. Based on its
authors’ significant experiences and contributions in the field,
as well as nearly 1000 additional references, Silviculture and Ecology
remains the only text that focuses on silviculture in western U.S.
forests -- providing background and basis for current biological,
ecological, and managerial practices.
