    Description

    This paper includes an illustration of a planning process to guide vegetation management throughout a travel route seen area and over the time period of a total management rotation (100-300 years). The process will produce direction on visual characteristics to be created and maintained within the biological potential and coordinated with associated re-source objectives. Conceptual treatments to achieve that direction will be shown for a ponderosa pine plant community. The concept of managing vegetation (visual aspects) through timber harvest is both applied and theoretical. Field examples where it has been applied are included.
