2017 Webinar: Ecological Forestry to Promote Healthy Forests
Ecological forestry has many definitions but at the simplest it is balancing the need for the extraction of forests products and natural stand and disturbance dynamics. Increasingly foresters and natural resource managers have to balance multiple objectives when developing silvicultural prescriptions. Silvics, the knowledge of individual tree’s life history, growth, and behavior, is the foundation of silviculture. By using knowledge of silvics, disturbance history, and underlying site characteristics, natural resource managers can use ecological forestry to develop silvicultural prescription to increase overall forest health.
