    Description

    Forests, particularly those on public lands, are managed for multiple resources. Forest resources include timber production, watershed protection, carbon sequestration, recreational opportunities, and wildlife habitat, among many others. For most nonindustrial private landowners, sustaining wildlife ranks higher than timber production as a forest ownership goal (Butler and Leatherberry 2004). Until recently, the SILVAH decision support system included only a very minor wildlife component, the ability to record stems as actual or potential den trees (Marquis et al. 1992). Wildlife information has been included in SILVAH training sessions in three ways: as part of the forest ecology background, as wildlife management suggestions within the SILVAH framework, and as a synthesis of the effects of various management actions on wildlife.
