This study describes the conceptual approach, logistics, and some preliminary results of an experiment designed to compare costs and biological and human responses among three stand management strategies along the east side of the central Coast Range of Oregon and in the central Oregon Cascade Range. In the Coast Range study tests are conducted for clear cut with reserve green trees, two-story, and group selection systems. In the Cascades, a study in young plantations was conducted in an attempt to restore old-forest structure and composition. The structural development of the stands and the species of wildlife that they support will be the basis for deciding if, when, and where these types of stand management approaches should be attempted over large spatial scales to meet the needs of species' individual territory sizes larger than a stand. Stands developed by using these techniques should be considered the potential building blocks for a designed landscape. How the development, implementation, and particularly monitoring of prescriptions can be coordinated among harvesting specialists, silviculturists, wildlife biologists, recreation specialists, and professionals in other disciplines are described. -from Authors
