Abstract

Contemporary forest management practices require a variety of retention treatments that leave clumps, blocks, strips, or zones of existing forest cover in order to achieve a wide array of biodiversity, wildlife, visual, ecological, and old growth creation/conservation objectives. Some of these practices call for leaving a portion or portions of existing stands for extended periods of time to accomplish such objectives.
