Optimal management of a flammable multi-stand forest for timber production and maintenance of nesting sites for wildlife

Spring, Daniel A.; Kennedy, John; McCarthy, Michael; Mac Nally, Ralph; Lindenmayer, David B


Decline of cavity-using wildlife species is a major forest management issue. One of the causes of this problem is the loss in cavity tree abundance, resulting from short rotation silviculture, stand-replacing disturbance events and timber harvesting in disturbed stands. Cavity tree availability cannot be guaranteed due to the stochastic nature of disturbance events. We developed a Markov model to predict future cavity tree availability under alternative tree felling and fire protection...[Show more]
