Description: The implementation of properly designed treatments to restore and sustain desired forest conditions in the Inland Northwest, besides moving forest stands more rapidly to an ecologically desirable and sustainable condition, can generate positive revenues from the timber to be removed. These treatments also have potential to increase the number of relatively high paying jobs, especially in rural areas where per capita incomes are nearly 30 percent below those of urban areas. In contrast the much-proposed thin-from-below prescription commonly does not fully accomplish ecological goals and often requires a subsidy of several hundred dollars per acre to implement.

Keywords: ecosystem management, forest succession, social sciences, ecological needs, economic aspects, ecosystem restoration
