    Description

    Pringle Falls Experimental Forest has been a center for research in ponderosa pine forests east of the crest of the Cascade Range since 1931. Long-term research facilities, sites, and future research opportunities are currently at risk from stand-replacement wildfire because of changes in stand structure resulting from past fire exclusion. At the same time, many of the special values are increasingly at risk from recreational impacts and nearby urban development. We describe the special values associated with ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws.) stands in the Experimental Forest, we present our rationale for a series of treatments, and we discuss implementation of a set of silvicultural prescriptions designed to protect and enhance the special values of Pringle Falls Experimental Forest.
