    The 2001 National Silviculture Workshop was held in Hood River, Oregon, and hosted by the Mt. Hood National Forest, the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, and the Pacific Northwest Research Station. The Washington Office Vegetation Management and Protection Research and Forest and Grassland staffs are ongoing sponsors of the biennial workshop, which began in 1973 in Marquette, Michigan. The general purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for scientists and land managers to exchange ideas and information and to develop opportunities for future collaboration. The 2001 workshop focused on the role of silviculture in supporting wildlife habitat and riparian management objectives. This topic was chosen to emphasize current issues in forestry and to underscore the important contribution of silviculture to ecosystem management. Papers were solicited on projects that demonstrated the use of silviculture in achieving wildlife and fish management goals. This document contains the papers that were offered at the 2001 workshop, and are grouped according to four themes: wildlife, vegetation, aquatic systems, and social systems. Authors are presented in the order in which papers were presented at the 2001 workshop. Nancy Lankford, Forest Silviculturist on the Mt. Hood National Forest, and Bob Obedzinski, Silviculturist on the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, were instrumental in organizing the 2001 workshop. The planning committee included Frank Burch, WO-FM; Sharon Friedman, WO-VMPR; Fred Zensen and Grant Gunderson, Pacific Northwest Regional Office; Andrew Carey, Peter Bisson, Connie Harrington, and Susan Stevens Hummel, Pacific Northwest Research Station.
