Description: We recommend that managers of forest-associated bird species follow a five-step hierarchy in establishing and implementing management programs. In essence, a manager must evaluate the composition and physiognomy of the landscape mosaic in the context of the regional and subregional goals and objectives. Then he/she can explore alternatives that allow manipulation of the configuration of the land uses within the management area to integrate elements of the surrounding landscape matrix. Wherever possible, spatial relationships within the region should be considered to help maintain connectivity among these and other suitable habitats in various ownerships. Partnerships and cooperation across ownerships are important to incorporate different rotation schedules and spatial arrangements of harvested sites, so that larger blocks of mature forest, rather than scattered small tracts, are emphasized in the management of forest-associated species.
