A System to Restore Northwestern Forests - Joint Fire Science

With over 100 years experience on the ground and in the forest, land managers are adding fl exible new concepts to silviculture and forest regeneration practices. Credit: ©marcopolo@dreamstime.com. Bending, Like the Reed in the Wind: A System to Restore Northwestern Forests Summary Silviculture is the study, cultivation, and management of forest trees. It is rooted in science, but often is an art based on the experience of the forester. This story explores free-selection, a silvicultural system developed by scientists that allows managers and stakeholders greater fl exibility in growing new forests. By using this system for applying treatments, managers craft a vision of the desired short- and long-term conditions of the forest. The focus is placed on how the remaining forest components will function, rather than focusing on stand structure guidelines that dictate stand treatments and tree removal.
