The Genesis of a Forest
Interested in learning about how to create habitat diversity or who is going to benefit from your timber harvest? Oftentimes, many people are interested in old-growth forest stands, but what about the beginning of a forest? Known as the "early seral" stage of a forest, the genesis of a forest stand provides an important habitat niche for wildlife and plant growth. Processes such as wildfires, pest and pathogens, extreme windfall events, and a host of other disturbances naturally reset portions of the forest to this early developmental stage. Join Washington State University - Northeastern Extension Forestry and early seral forest ecologist Dr. Mark Swanson to talk about the benefits of early seral habitats, how these vary across different forests, methods you can implement to promote early seral habitat, and listen to his experiences studying Mount St. Helens following the historic eruption.
