Summary
Once regarded mainly as the cultivation of forest trees, silviculture is today shifting to a broader focus, one that reflects society's changing forest values. In addition to timber management, the practice and science of silviculture are now concerned with tending forests--to maintain forest health and reduce fire potential, benefit wildlife, and maintain aesthetics--and with ensuring options for future uses of the forest. Silviculture and Ecology of Western U.S. Forests follows the progression of silviculture as a science and looks closely at the value of forests. The only silviculture text to focus on the forests of the western U.S., primarily those in Oregon, Washington, and California, it is based on over 900 references as well as the authors' research and management experience
