Description: In August 20-23, 2004, a conference was held in Kamilche, WA, with the title Productivity of Western Forests: A Forest Products Focus. The meeting brought together researchers and practitioners interested in discussing the economic and biological factors influencing wood production and value. One of the underlying assumptions of the meeting organizers was that management activities would be practiced within a framework of sustaining or improving site productivity; thus, several papers deal with methods to protect or improve productivity or discuss new studies designed to test the effects of various practices. This proceedings includes 11 papers based on oral presentations at the conference, 3 papers based on posters and 2 papers describing the Fall River and Matlock Long-Term Site Productivity study areas visited on the field tours. The papers cover subjects on forest harvesting activities, stand establishment, silviculture, site productivity, remote sensing, and wood product technologies.
Keywords: Site productivity, forest harvesting, stand establishment, silviculture, forest products, Western forests, LIDAR, log quality, tree quality
