    Description

    Researchers working out of the Southern and Northern Research Stations have partnered with two National Forests to conduct two large-scale studies designed to assess the effectiveness of silvicultural techniques used to restore and maintain upland oak (Quercus spp.)-dominated ecosystems in the Cumberland Plateau Region of the southeastern United States. We based both large-scale studies on approved Land and Resource Management Plans (LRMP), but the projects being studied have been implemented under separate authorities. On the Bankhead National Forest, the District Ranger and staff have worked with a formal forest liaison board to gain interest and acceptance of the new Forest Health and Restoration Project to be implemented under traditional Forest Service authorities. The impetus for the Daniel Boone National Forest study was also consistent with the LRMP developed in collaboration with interested publics, but the study projects were implemented using authorities granted by the Healthy Forest Restoration Act of 2003. In both studies, researchers are assessing response to silvicultural techniques used to control species composition and alter habitat for wildlife and restoration purposes, including intermediate treatments (e.g., thinning and prescribed burning) and regeneration harvests (e.g., shelterwood).
