The TRIAD approach to forest management involves dividing the forest into 3 zones, each with its own management objectives, but with the overall goal of increasing the ecological and economic sustainability of the forest. For the past 5 years, we have been experimenting with TRIAD zoning in central Quebec, incorporating social interests into the original concept of TRIAD management. Results generally indicate that this approach is economically viable, socially acceptable, and preferable… Expand

Comparing different forest zoning options for landscape-scale management of the boreal forest: possible benefits of the TRIAD.
Abstract Forest management has been criticised in the last 20 years for its negative impact on the native species, structures and functions of the forest. Of many possible alternatives proposed toExpand
Evaluation of forest management strategies based on Triad zoning
TLDR
This analysis presents methods and results that may be of value to forest managers con templating implementation of Triad zoning in jurisdictions where timber supply is fully utilized. Expand
Retention Forestry to Maintain Multifunctional Forests: A World Perspective
TLDR
Retention forestry is applicable to all forest biomes, complements conservation in reserves, and represents bottom-up conservation through forest manager involvement and link retention forestry with land-zoning allocation at various scales, expanding its uses to forest restoration and the management of uneven—age forests.

Maximizing Conservation and Production with Intensive Forest Management: It’s All About Location
TLDR
A spatially explicit landscape simulation model is used to examine the effects of different spatial scenarios on landscape structure, connectivity for native forest wildlife, stand diversity, harvest volume, and road construction, and results favor the agglomeration of intensive management areas.

Dynamics, Silviculture and Management of Mixed Forests
There is a growing attention to mixed forests in the world. Their capacity to cope with mitigation and adaptation to climate change by increasing resilience and lowering risks is pinpointed as anExpand
Balancing Multiple Objectives Using a Classification-Based Forest Management System in Changbai Mountains, China
TLDR
Assessment of how a classification-based forest management (CFM) system could achieve multiple objectives in a Korean pine broadleaf mixed forest ecosystem at Changbai Mountain in Northeast China indicated that the current forest management regime would fail to reach the designated timber production level and move the forest landscape far away from its RNV.

Concentrating anthropogenic disturbance to balance ecological and economic values: applications to forest management.
TLDR
The results imply that differences between unmanaged and managed landscapes can be reduced by concentrating logging efforts through a combination of protected areas and intensive wood production, and by creating some larger cutblocks, adding to a growing body of literature indicating that intensive management on a small part of the landscape may be better than less intensive management spread out over a much larger part ofThe landscape.

TLDR
This work provides novel treatment of the role of burn severity in mediating biotic response by examining its influence on the amount, type, and distribution of live, postfire residual material, and highlights therole of fire in shaping spatial and temporal patterns in forest biodiversity. Expand
Preserving nature through intensive plantation forestry: The case for forestland allocation with illustrations from British Columbia
TLDR
The core problem is that, despite a vast forest estate in British Columbia, land has become scarce and it is therefore logical to substitute capital, labour and knowledge for land in forest production to produce the predictably high levels of timber harvest. Expand
