Description: Sites were identified on publicly managed and privately owned lands in western Oregon and Washington where research or demonstration of new forestry practices could be conducted by using a retrospective approach. One hundred and seventy-six stands were selected for this catalog to represent examples of the future condition that could be expected from new forestry practices. Information from these stands will serve to guide current management in developing alternative forestry practices. The stand types cataloged are characteristic of a range of structural conditions desirable for specific objectives that could be achieved with alternative forestry practices. Baseline information on overstory and understory qomposition and, structure, amounts of coarse woody debris, disturbance history, past management activities, and landscape context of each stand was compiled in a database and is available to the forest research and management community. Information will aid researchers from many disciplines and managers by providing data about stand conditions and locations.

Keywords: New forestry, new perspectives, ecosystem management, retrospective studies, database, stand conditions.
