Abstract

In 2000, the North Central Research Station initiated the Forest Productivity Integrated Research Program (North Central Research Station 2001). This program combines the efforts of scientists from across the Station's 13 research work units to examine the current condition of the forests in the North Central Region and their prospects for producing wood and fiber. The overall goal is to develop the scientific knowledge and tools needed to increase and maintain forest productivity and the supply of forest products in the North Central Region. The challenge is to optimize productivity and availability of forest products using sustainable silvicultural systems that are socially acceptable, economically viable, and ecologically feasible.
