    Description

    Use of an ecosystem approach at a landscape scale to program and guide accomplishments of multi-resource and social objectives has been discussed between researchers and natural resource managers for many years. Presently, great interest exists in the applicability of uneven-aged management practices for such an approach in conifer forests of the Sierra Nevada of California. The Kings River Sustainable Forest Ecosystems Project involves an administrative study by the Sierra National Forest and the Pacific Southwest Research Station that is providing an opportunity to implement and study uneven-aged management over a large landscape. The study was designed in part to answer questions about the effects and costs of implementing the group-selection form of uneven-aged management. With the implementation of several projects, some of these questions are beginning to be answered. We document some of the lessons learned, while implementing small group selections and thinning between those groups.
