    Description

    Economically viable silvicultural options are critical for management activities that provide wood products, reduce forest fuels, improve forest health, and enhance wildlife habitat. The Tenderfoot Research Project was developed in the late 1990s to evaluate and quantify ecological and biological effects of two-aged silvicultural treatments including prescribed fire in lodgepole pine forests. Research treatments were designed and installed on the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest to create reserve stand structures that emulate stands created by natural fires, and to evaluate hydrologic and vegetative response. Timber products extracted through this research project included sawlogs, stud logs, posts, rails, firewood, and pulpwood. There was a net profit from the sale of products removed from the 649 acres treated.
