Abstract
  • Forest managers are, and will continue to be, constantly confronted with the dilemma of choosing between different silvicultural and management systems to achieve various desired mixes of multiple-use benefits on specific forest properties. Such choices have to be made, unfortunately, because no single silvicultural or management system is ideal for all situations. Complicating these choices is the hard fact that our scientific knowledge is not well distributed over the range of silviculture and management options available to our use. There is no doubt that forest researchers know much more about even-aged silviculture than uneven-aged silviculture and management--simply because there has been more research done on the former systems. With the increasing concern over the alleged over-use of clearcutting, however, it has become more and more evident that forest researchers must be able to provide technically reliable information on all silvicultural and management systems. The state-of-the-art knowledge about the applicability of uneven-aged silviculture and management was recently reviewed in two separate Forest Service workshops. The first workshop was held in Morgantown, West Virginia, July 15-17, 1975, for the eastern forest regions; the second workshop was held in Redding, California, October 19-21, 1976, for the western forest regions. Participants were primarily tn-Service, with representatives from Research, National Forest System, and State and Private Forestry. One major objective of these workshops was to develop a much better mutual understanding of the definitions of uneven-aged and even-aged silviculture and management, and the differences between them. A number of research gaps and research needs were also identified, and many of these needs are now being addressed in program planning for several research work units in the four eastern and four western Experiment Stations. The papers presented at these two workshops have been consolidated into these Proceedings so as to serve as interim working guides for forest managers in better understanding the complexities of uneven-aged silviculture and management of public and private forest lands throughout the Eastern and Western United States until more of the needed research can be completed.
