2013 Landscape Analysis Workshop
Landscape Assessment Tools and Processes For Forest and Project Planning
Where do Forest Management Projects Come From?
April 23, 2013
LaSelles Stewart Center, Corvallis, Oregon
Purpose: When watershed analysis came into play under the NWFP, there was a lot of discussion about landscapes and how they function. In recent years, as many units have focused vegetation management programs on plantation thinning, the idea of putting projects in a “landscape context” seems to have diminished. This workshop will remind us all of landscape processes, how to analyze and display those processes using cutting-edge tools, and how to use that information to develop project recommendations.
Sponsors: Central Cascades Adaptive Management Partnership (Willamette National Forest, H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest, Eugene BLM, PNW Research Station, and Oregon State University, USGS, UofO); the NW Oregon Ecology Group (Eugene and Salem BLM, Mt. Hood, Siuslaw, and Willamette National Forests, and Columbia River Gorge National Recreation Area); and the R6 Resource Planning and Monitoring Group.
