Forest Restoration Using Variable Density Thinning: Lessons from Douglas-Fir Stands in Western Oregon

Abstract

A large research effort was initiated in the 1990s in western United States and Canada to investigate how the development of old-growth structures can be accelerated in young even-aged stands that regenerated following clearcut harvests, while also providing income and ecosystem services. Large-scale experiments were established to compare effects of… (More)
