Abstract

Research planning in the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station has followed a grass roots model for more than two years-ROADMAP, a research and development management plan. The goals for research within ROADMAP include understanding, protecting, managing, and utilizing forest ecosystems. There are nine research themes set to help achieve these goals, each with a set of research initiatives that describe contemporary and future science. Development of the "Silviculture and Resource Management Theme" has helped the Station define and communicate the role of silviculture to a variety of audiences. This paper presents the silvicultural statement developed by a core group of Station scientists.
