    Description

    Resource managers are seeking silvicultural solutions to a variety of ecological, economic, and social issues. These issues include maintaining healthy and aesthetically pleasing forests, and sustaining or increasing ecological diversity. To reestablish a conifer component, and thereby increase species diversity, the LaCroix Ranger District of the Superior National Forest planned to apply a reserve tree method (RTM) to reduce the density of aspen suckers and increase survival and growth of planted conifers. The Ruffed Grouse Society questioned widespread application of the treatment because of its potential impacts on early successional forest communities, and offered to help finance a study to monitor results of the RTM. Communication and cooperation among the LaCroix District, the North Central Station, and the Ruffed Grouse Society led to a three-way partnership and a study to monitor and evaluate the results in six stands for 10 years. This long-term partnership will provide mutually beneficial silvicultural information to all parties.
