Of woodpeckers and harvests: Finding compatibility between habitat and salvage logging

Documents and Media Posted on: November 21, 2019
The western United States is home to many woodpecker species that are strongly associated with recently disturbed forests, including post wildfire and post-beetle outbreaks. These types of landscapes are favored habitat because the dead and dying trees provide nesting and foraging substrates. When managing these landscapes, managers must balance providing habitat for woodpeckers considered species of conservation concern with conducting salvage logging sales that generate economic revenue for the surrounding communities. Until recently, managers couldn't be certain where suitable woodpecker habitat was located and whether the salvage logging would negatively impact the population. Document Type: Other Documents

Science You Can Use (in 5 min): A go-to guide for your mastication questions

Documents and Media Posted on: June 27, 2019
Mastication, a method once used almost exclusively by utility companies to reduce vegetation beneath power lines, is now also regarded as a useful treatment for preparing a site for planting, releasing sapling-sized trees, or reducing surface fuels in fire-prone forest ecosystems. However, not all mastication treatments are the same. Land managers must consider a number of factors when designing a mastication project, including can the site handle mastication equipment, what type of equipment to use, and the preferred size of masticated biomass. For land managers wanting guidance on selecting a mastication treatment, To Masticate or Not: Useful Tips for Treating Forest, Woodland, and Shrubland Vegetation, a general technical report (GTR) published by the Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) offers answers.
