Description: Disturbance plays an important role in forest development processes. Present-day forest condition can be viewed as the cumulative result of various historical disturbance events; therefore, an understanding of disturbance history is important when describing overall forest condition. Pre-treatment studies of the Hardwood Ecosystem Experiment (HEE) have described various ecological and social aspects of portions of two State Forests in south-central Indiana that serve as the study area for the HEE. This paper describes the timber harvesting history for the HEE study area and how this history relates to HEE studies and current forest condition. Additionally, pre-treatment results of HEE studies are discussed in the context of past state forest management activities to highlight important emerging issues in state forest management that could be addressed by future HEE research.
