Problem Addressed: Carbon storage in larch
Goal(s)/Objective(s): Assess benefits for planting larch for carbon forestry in this area
Key Findings: Substitution benefits of planting larch can sustain carbon MAI's almost 4 times as high as natural stands
Problem Addressed: The decline of several spruce-fir associated birds
Goal(s)/Objective(s): Determine how forest management is associated with mature forest structure and how abundance of focal species responds to mature forest structure
Key Findings: Forest management treatments reflect a range of vegetative structural conditions from mature reference stands with large diameter trees and relatively low shrub cover to clearcut stands with few large trees and high shrub cover.
Relationships Among Forest Management and Spruce Grouse (Falcipennis canadensis) Patch Occupancy and Abundance in Commercially-Managed Forests
Problem Addressed: Decline of spruce grouse populations
Goal(s)/Objective(s): To determine how the maturity, structure, and composition of the commercial forest affect spruce grouse occupancy and abundance.
Key Findings: Forest harvest practices that maintain and promote conifer regeneration should be implemented in both current, and historically, conifer-dominated stands.
Problem Addressed: Differences between old and new egg masses of Western Spruce Budworm
Goal(s)/Objective(s): Train foliage collectors and examiners to be consistent with sampling.
