The loss of critical habitat provided by late successional forests has prompted the search for management options that can accelerate the development of late successional forest structure in young stands. We examined operational-scale commercial thinning treatments at seven sites to evaluate if thinning could accelerate development of late successional forest structures in 40-60 year old Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) forests. Thinning treatments included an untreated… CONTINUE READING
