Description

To communicate the story of silviculture on the Allegheny National Forest, we need to distinguish silviculture-the art and science of manipulating forest vegetation to achieve management objectives-from forest management. During the field trip for the National Silviculture Workshop we visited five sites that demonstrate how inventory and monitoring, resource management, research, education, demonstration, and partnerships help communicate the role of silviculture. They also demonstrate communication to practitioners, policy makers, and members of the public who participate in setting management direction for national forests. On the Allegheny National Forest, our close association with our partners in Research and State and Private Forestry increases our effectiveness as communicators about the role of silviculture in managing this National Forest.
