DescriptionApplying science to the practice of forest management is a difficult process. Scientific results tend to be expressed in terms such as variances, confidence intervals, and probability distributions. Rarely does science provide unequivocal information, yet land managers must make definitive decisions on the ground. The General Technical Report "An Ecosystem Management Strategy for Sierran Mixed-Conifer Forests," published by the U.S. Forest Service (hereafter GTR 220) (North et al. 2009) presented some important concepts for land managers to consider; however, implementation of these principles into detailed, site-specific application requires some novel approaches.
