Speakers from academia and various private and public forest managers will speak on the span of silviculture treatments and approaches they use from short rotation silviculture to treatments that create middle-aged and older forests comprised of a mix of values. A primary emphasis of this workshop is to discuss the options and outcomes that various silvicultural strategies provide.
