Description: In recent years, institutional commitment to silviculture as a research discipline has decreased in the Great Lakes region and elsewhere. Ironically, at the same time, the various demands placed on silviculture by users of research have increased greatly and continue to do so today. There remains the need to produce more and better quality wood and fiber, a need heightened by an increasing population. In addition, silviculture is called upon to restore degraded ecosystems, to increase ecological complexity and diversity in production systems, to restore and manage ecological reserves, and to ensure that forests are managed sustainably for a wide array of ecosystem goods and services including aesthetic quality, recreational opportunities, and non-timber forest products.
