Description: Silviculturists have primarily relied on classical even-aged silvicultural systems (the planned series of treatments for tending, harvesting, and re-establishing a stand) for ponderosa pine, with uneven-aged systems used to a lesser degree. Current management practices involve greater innovation because of conflicting management objectives. Silvicultural systems used in the foreseeable future will likely meld traditional systems with greater reliance on variation across the landscape because of differing values and desired outputs. Significant changes in the management of ponderosa pine are reviewed; issues that likely will affect the future management of ponderosa pine systems are listed; and critical gaps in our understanding of ponderosa pine silviculture that may affect our management in the near term are identified.
