Description: Describes the status of our knowledge about mixed conifer silviculture in the interior Southwest. Ecological background is reviewed first, followed by description of silvicultural methods. Relevant literature is discussed, along with observations, experience, and results of unpublished research. Contains unpublished input by subject-matter specialists and southwestern forest managers, largely as feedback from their reviews of a working draft. Research needs are also considered. Aspen forests are included; in the Southwest they are usually succeeded by mixed conifers.
Keywords: Silviculture, forest regeneration, Abies concolor, Abies lasiocarpa var. arizonica, Picea engelmannii, Picea pungens, Pinus ponderosa, Pinus strobiformis, Populus tremuloides, Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca
