Many of Oregon’s forests are harvested using clearcutting followed by planting, which works well in the Douglas-fir forests of western Oregon. But many forest owners may be interested in other techniques to harvest and manage their forests. The Alternative Forest Management series is a growing compendium of working examples (called case studies) from Oregon’s forests. These case studies illustrate successful alternatives for managing forests and highlight the lessons learned along the way.
Each case study in the series is available as a PDF publication. Three titles are also available as interactive, digital publications in the free Alternative Forest Management app.
