    Description

    The key to managing forest wildlife is providing diverse habitats. Stand size, stand distribution, and rotation length determine how diverse habitats will be. Since the tenure of private forest owners is generally shorter than prescribed rotations, rotation recommendations serve more as guides to the amount and intensity of cutting needed to maintain desired habitat. In making silvicultural prescriptions, including stand sizes and distribution, we must consider the home ranges and habitat needs of desired species in meeting the wildlife objectives of private owners or land managers.
