Description: Two principles of ecology can be applied to make management for recreation, water, and wildlife habitat compatible with timber management. They are diversity within plant communities (i.e. timber types) and interspersion of these diverse communities in place and time. Intensive cultural operations can be the tool to create the right mixture of diversity and interspersion to serve the priority needs of the landowner. This requires imaginative planning and the recognition of key-value areas. Areas where recreation, water, and wildlife assume the key position are relatively small compared with timber. Usually, timber operations can be carried out on at least eighty percent of the land with only slight modification to accommodate other resource values. Forest management based on such a multiple-resource approach overcomes small losses in timber income with large gains in public acceptance.
