    Description

    Changing public values have led to federal land management direction like the Northwest Forest Plan with major land allocations for late successional forest habitat. Restoration silviculture is a tool for maintaining optimum habitat despite risk of catastrophic disturbance due to the combined impact of fire, insects and disease. The Gotchen Late Successional Reserve (LSR) in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest provides an example of the issues of southern Washington Cascades LSR management. The Landscape Management System is a computer model applied to the planning for the Gotchen LSR area to assess alternative management actions, understand the effects of these actions on late successional habitat and other values, and develop appropriate management.
