DescriptionTraditionally, silviculturists have been involved with fine resolution landscape assessments. Today, silviculturists are asked to go beyond that scale to look at a wide range of objectives (including wildlife, commodities, sustainability, diversity, and ecosystem resilience) on scales ranging from landscape to adjacent stands, watershed, regions, and sub-regions. As the issues facing natural resource management become more complex, more contentious, and more political, assessments will become an integral part of management, putting the silviculturist in a vital role of looking over a broad range of temporal and spatial scales.
