Description: This paper presents a broad-based synthesis of the general ecology of the ponderosa pine ecosystem in the Black Hills. This synthesis contains information and results of research on ponderosa pine from numerous sources within the Black Hills ecosystem. We discuss the silvical characteristics of ponderosa pine, natural disturbances that govern ecosystem processes, wildlife habitat and management, various silvicultural methods to manage ponderosa pine forests, and watershed management of the Black Hills.
Keywords: Black Hills, silviculture, ecology, ponderosa pine, even-aged management, uneven-aged management, reforestation, wildlife habitat, natural disturbance, snags, insects, disease, fire history
