Funded Research Projects: SRM

HEBO LTEP remeasurement

Research Sponsored By: US Forest Service
Principal Investigator: Bernard Bormann
Project Description
UW ONRC will examine and analyze the success of three silviculture prescriptions and control that comprise the Mt Hebo long-term ecosystem productivity (LTEP) site located on the Siuslaw National Forest. The success of these here-to-for untried prescriptions has important implications for managing the Siuslaw and other coastal PNW National Forests. This project may impact collaborative efforts between ONRC and Washington DNR and result in implementation of some of the prescriptions, if they are working well, on OESF DNR lands that are part of a new operational watershed study (T3 Experiment). Project takes place at ONRC in Forks and on the Hebo LTEP field site.
