Accelerating the development of structural complexity: a case study from Ellsworth Creek Preserve, Washington
Presenters: Dr Van Kane, Caden Chamberlain, University of Washington, and Michael Case, The Nature Conservancy
Restoration treatments can theoretically accelerate the development of structural complexity in simplified forest stands. New research provides insights into the effects of restoration treatments on the structural complexity of forest stands in the Ellsworth Creek Preserve in southwestern Washington 10 years post-treatment. The research team also compared forest structure and gap patterns between treated stands and existing late-successional areas within the preserve. In addition to sharing research results, the discussion may help forest managers and landowners in the region who are considering restoration treatments as an option for improving short-term structural complexity in simplified forest stands.
