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

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.
