A Landscape-level Assessment of Whitebark Pine Regeneration, Growth, and Mortality in Mixed-species Stands

Forest monitoring data can provide unbiased, landscape-level assessments of species of interest. This study showed that whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) is more widespread and abundant in mixed-species stands than in whitebark pine-dominated stands, and that regeneration, growth, and mortality of whitebark pines were often comparable in mixed-species vs. pure stands.

A Retrospective Analysis of the Pinyon Die-off of the Early 2000s

The pinyon die-off of the early 2000s, brought about by a combination of drought and the pinyon ips bark beetle, was though by some to be an unprecedented event potentially leading to near extinction of common pinyon. The population is still in negative net growth, but shows signs of recovering.

Adapting Forests to Climate Change: New Resources for Forestry Professionals

Land managers need tools that support climate adaptation decision-making. The Adaptation Workbook provides information and resources regarding climate change for incorporating adaptation into forest management. We describe new initiatives recently launched that expand the focus of climate-informed management to strategies for managing water resources, carbon storage, and urban forests to improve meeting the needs of professionals managing a diversity of resources.

Are Observed Trends in Hardwood Tree Grade Due to Forest Degradation or Data Collection Anomalies?

We demonstrate that there have been significant decreases in the relative saw-log volume found in higher-graded, commercially valuable hardwood trees in Kentucky and Tennessee from 2001 to 2013. But quality control data collected in conjunction with those tree grade data led us to question the validity of those observed trends.

Assessing Fuels Treatment Effectiveness in Improving Tree and Stand Health

We assessed tree health and vigor under three common fuels reduction treatments in south-central Oregon during the extreme drought years of 2014-2015. We correlated high-resolution aerial imagery with drought stress providing a method to remotely detect stress and decline at the tree, stand, and landscape scales.

Bark Beetles Continue to Cause Snags for Forest Health: A Look at Stand Density Management in Western Forests

We will provide an overview of recent bark beetle outbreaks in western pine forests and present how effective various forest management regimes are at reducing the risk of elevated tree mortality from bark beetles in southern California.

Changes in the Land Lead to Change in Black Cherry

For the last several decades of the 20th century, the black cherry of the Allegheny Plateau ecoregion was known around the world for its quality. In the 21st century, numerous aspects of black cherry growth have changed.  Scientists and managers turn to long-term research to understand why.

Development of New Dutch Elm Disease Tolerant Selections for Restoration of the American Elm

An overview of our research and development efforts to identify and create American elm trees through controlled pollination with trees that that have tolerance to Ophiostoma ulmi and O. novo-ulmi and our efforts to use the American elm as a tool in restoration efforts will be presented.

Ecological Consequences of Invasive Insects in Monogeneric Stands on the Atlantic Coastal Plain

Outbreaks of Gypsy moth in oak-dominated stands and Southern Pine Beetle in pine-dominated stands are favoring stands of mixed composition on the mid-Atlantic Coastal Plain.  Although forest structure and composition are altered, long-term carbon sequestration is less affected as annual rates are similar for oak-, mixed and pine-dominated stands.

Effects of Climate Change on Primary Disturbances in Western Coniferous Forests

It is now recognized that a sound forest carbon policy informed by the best available science represents an important part of the solution in addressing climate change. I discuss the implications of projected climatic changes on primary disturbances of western coniferous forests.
