    Description

    Using an ecosystem approach to forest management will change silvicultural practices, thus requiring utilization options to provide revenue and to help offset the costs of the silviculture treatments. The Forest Service, university cooperators, and several industry mills in the southern, western, and northeastern United States have been involved in a national multidisciplinary research project to provide information and methods to evaluate current and future product opportunities for woody materials removed from ecosystem-managed forests. This paper explains how research from a range of disciplines is providing information to aid in making management decisions.
