Description: The Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest (TCEF) is a 9,125 acre experimental forest located in the western portion of the Little Belt Mountains. The TCEF was established as an experimental forest in 1961 for the development of management techniques for harvesting lodgepole pine while maintaining soil stability. The research emphasis was expanded in 1991 to develop and evaluate ecosystem-based treatments for sustaining productivity and biodiversity of lodgepole pine forests and watersheds. Water related issues are still of high concern, however, through ecosystem-based management, all forest resources are integrated into the research planning.
Keywords: Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest, management, lodgepole pine, soil stability, sustainability, treatments
