Abstract or Summary
  • This study outlines a procedure to review and identify the current forest management situation and techniques employed on the Alsea District of the Siuslaw National Forest (SNF) in Western Oregon and compare them to the situation and techniques employed on the Bimbo-Lobaye Forest District (BLFD) in the Central African Republic (CAR). On the Alsea District, specialized tasks associated with forest management, timber harvesting, wildlife management, forest fire management and recreation are efficiently performed. In the CAR government, policies envision those ends, but the means to achieve them are inadequate. The objectives of this study are (1) to review forestry in the CAR and the BLFD on one hand, and the US, with special emphasis on the SNF and the Alsea District, on the other; (2) to compare current policy and practices of forestry in the CAR with those of the SNF, in order to identify both similarities and differences; (3) using information from objective 1 and 2, to develop a management system for the forests of the CAR which incorporates those elements of the Alsea District strategies which are useful and attainable in the CAR. This study also expresses how multiple-use decision-making under the interdisciplinary concept is employed in the well managed forests of the Alsea District. These lessons in turn will be compared with current and potential problems in the BLFD of the CAR. In the CAR, forestry management agencies lack trained manpower, good organizational structure, and decision-making processes necessary to achieve sustained forest yield, and to prevent damage to the forests. Accelerated development of forest policies and organizational capabilities is necessary if we are to mitigate the destruction of these forests. Six weeks of observation on the Alsea District, course work at Oregon State University, and previous experience from forestry in the CAR, constitute the source of information used in this analysis. An attempt is made to develop improved management techniques that could be employed in tropical forests of the CAR.
