About this book

Presents practical solutions to the pervasive problem of deteriorating forest conditions in Western North America. Advocating a new direction in forest management, they explore the promise of 'restoration forestry' - an ecologically based approach that seeks to establish forest structures in which fire can once again serve as a beneficial process rather than as a destructive aberration.

The Authors
STEPHEN F. ARNO, now retired, was research forester with the USDA Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station. He is co-author of Flames in Our Forest (Island Press, 2002), and has been restoring his family's uneven-aged ponderosa pine forest for more than 30 years.

CARL E. FIEDLER is research professor at the University of Montana. He teaches silviculture, conducts research on uneven-aged management, and presents short courses on silviculture, fire, and restoration forestry throughout the West.
