The 'Operational Tools' Journey
Opportunities to EBM
Disturbance tools tend to be highly correlated with management jurisdiction. Harvest is used in Forest Management Areas, prescribed and managed fire in Protected Areas, and unmanaged fire or suppression are disturbances/tools in non-commercial forests. The challenge is to integrate these tools more fluidly among jurisdictions so that outcomes more closely reflect natural patterns.
The EBM Journey
The journey is the process of supporting and sharing knowledge that will allow us to shift current forestry management towards EBM
