Description: Silviculturists create desired forest conditions across the landscape and over time. Our job is to synthesize knowledge from many disciplines to develop prescriptions that produce desired forest conditions. In turn, forest conditions result in products and values for society. Silviculture and silviculture research help provide the scientific basis for land management decisions. Crucial roles for research silviculturists are mensurative studies that quantify resources, manipulative studies that test hypotheses, synthesis, and publication; without these, new knowledge will not be generated and the science of silviculture will progress slowly. Silviculturists are central to implementing Ecosystem Management, and they must communicate the importance of their profession to clients, other natural resource disciplines, policymakers, and the public. A checklist is provided highlighting important points about silviculture and silviculture research.
