    Description

    Guidelines are provided to help the forest manager and silviculturist develop even- and/or uneven-aged cutting practices needed to convert old-growth spruce-fir forests into managed stands for a variety of resource needs. Guidelines consider stand conditions, succession, windfall risk, and insect and disease susceptibility. Cutting practices are designed to integrate timber production with increased water yield, maintained water quality, improved wildlife habitat, and enhanced opportunities for recreation and scenic viewing.
