Managing Leave Trees in the Pacific Northwest
April 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
When planning to harvest timber, forest landowners and managers often wonder how many trees they should leave standing on the landscape and in which locations to maximize the benefit they provide to wildlife once logging is completed. An OFRI-hosted webinar later this month will highlight the latest scientific research on the importance of these leave trees, as well as other “retained structures” such as large stumps, downed wood and standing dead trees, or snags.
The Managing Leave Trees in the Pacific Northwest webinar, scheduled for 2 p.m. on April 27, will feature two presenters: Gary Roloff, a professor and chairman of the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Michigan State University, and Jake Verschuyl, director of forestry research in the western U.S. and British Columbia for the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement. The webinar is free to attend, but pre-registration is required.
This webinar is part of OFRI’s Wildlife in Managed Forests outreach program, which synthesizes current research findings regarding forest wildlife and makes that information available to foresters, wildlife managers, forest landowners and other interested parties.
