DescriptionA cooperative project, developed by Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the Pacific Northwest Research Station (PNW), provides a framework for managers and scientists to (1) obtain experience with a range of silvicultural options; (2) develop information about public response to visual appearance, economic performance, and biological aspects associated with each option; and (3) demonstrate and communicate the consequences of applying the options (singly or mixes thereof) over the landscape to lay and technical audiences. The project is being installed as part of DNR's timber sale program on a 90,000-acre "working forest."
