The bimonthly Science You Can Use Bulletin and our NEW Science You Can Use (in 5 minutes) are Rocky Mountain Research Station publications providing synthesized scientific information for high-priority management needs. The publications on this page synthesize research conducted by station scientists and collaborators in 2019 and deliver key science findings and management implications to people who make and influence decisions about managing land and natural resources.
Opt in to our email list if you would like to be notified of future editions.
Contact the editor, Nehalem Clark, with questions, comments, or suggestions.
The bulletin is distributed electronically to resource professionals, partners and collaborators throughout the Intermountain West and beyond.

Retention of old ponderosa pine trees within restored stands provides forests with a diversity of age structure, genetics, and resilience to low to moderate severity wildfires.
