Metolius Preserve Section 17 Commercial Thinning, Deschutes Land Trust -2011

Designed and implemented a 80-acre commercial thinning in second growth ponderosa pine on a private ownership near Camp Sherman, Oregon. Project services included prescription development, tree marking and harvest layout, permitting, log marketing, logging contract supervision and administration. Mosaic thinning, a prescription designed to restore spatial heterogeneity, gaps and snags was implemented. This project was designed to study snag use preferences by white-headed woodpeckers (a focal management species) in partnership with the American Bird Conservancy and University of Oregon.
