Two-aged to Multi-aged Stand Management in the Coast Range

This publication is part of the Alternative Forest Management series. It describes a case study on shelterwood harvest and using active management to convert a mature, even-aged stand to a multi-aged stand in the Oregon Coast Range. The landowner's core management philosophy is to create forests that are both ecologically complex and economically viable.

Very interesting and I am looking at what it takes to grow big trees on the Coast. The idea that success is site specific is even more important when working with species like western hemlock with a shallow root system and history of windthrow. I'm looking forward to other case studies in other locations.
