Title: Alternatives to clearcutting of old growth in southeast Alaska.

Author: Duncan, Sally.;

Date: 1999

Source: Science Findings. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. October (19): 1-5

Publication Series: Science Findings

Description: This issue of Science Findings examines the results of a study designed to provide a broad array of silvicultural options for land managers. Pacific Northwest Research Station scientist Mike McClellan is leading the study and has found that timber harvesting by using alternatives to clearcutting is viable in the current marketplace and technically feasible across a wide range of cutting intensity. Other findings have shown that moderate, partial cutting encourages diverse understory vegetation, similar to vegetation found in adjacent uncut old-growth stands. The effectiveness of a wide range of alternatives to clearcutting will continue to be tested, developed, and watched by scientists, managers, and the public.
