Models of forest growth and yield are complex collections of mathematical functions and computer code designed to simulate the biological growth of forest trees and/or stands. While models may differ in the details, most such models rely on a very similar collection of tree, stand, and forest input data. These data may derive from field measurements, external models and equations, and imputation procedures. An understanding of the model framework is useful to understand the interaction of input data and model components in making predictions. Through this understanding, model users can gain a greater appreciation of models, model results, and conclusions to be drawn from inventory systems. Attendees will also gain insights into approaches for evaluating and comparing the most commonly used models. The agenda is not specific to any particular software. Growth and yield model software experience is not required for workshop attendance.

This course reviews a process of systematically evaluating and tracking local wood raw material markets and regional forest product markets for investing in and managing timberlands and wood-using facilities.  It provides a process for prioritizing questions, aggregating data, conducting analysis and communicating results and recommendations.  The process has evolved through hundreds of Forisk engagements and dozens of research studies focused on breaking down local wood baskets and timber markets for a range of questions and clients.

This workshop will define and explore the “silviculture continuum” in western Oregon forests. Speakers from academia and various private and public forest managers will speak on the span of silviculture treatments and approaches they use from short rotation silviculture to treatments that create middle-aged and older forests comprised of a mix of values. A primary emphasis of this workshop is to discuss the options and outcomes that various silvicultural strategies provide.

The Committee for Family Forestlands has identified a need for understanding, describing and finding ways to improve the myriad of taxes related to forest and forestland ownership that family forest landowners pay. These taxes potentially affect family forestland managers by encouraging and/or discouraging sound forest management. Tax costs and policies may also determine whether families are able or willing to keep forestland in forest use and/or in family ownership. 

This symposium will focus on tax issues and identify areas where additional education may be needed or where tax policy and other values may conflict.
