Salvage Science Series 1 - Panel Discussion on New Research and Tools For Salvage Logging Management & Planning

The Salvage Science Series presented recent research on the effects of post-fire salvage logging and new tools for helping to plan salvage treatments.

This event was a two-stage process. First, participants watched the four pre-recorded webinars. Second, viewers participated in a panel discussion with the event speakers about salvage logging.

The event topics and speakers included:

Incorporating Woodpecker Habitat into Design of Post-Fire Salvage Logging

Vicki Saab - Research Wildlife Biologist, USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, Bozeman

Jonathan Dudley – Ecologist, USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, Boise

Post-Fire Salvage Logging Effects on Soils, Runoff, and Sediment Production in Western Watersheds

Joe Wagenbrenner - Research Hydrologist, USDA Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Research Station, Arcata

Is That Tree Dead? Predicting tree death after fire for salvage decisions

Sharon Hood - Research Ecologist, USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, Missoula

Understanding Post Wildfire Management Effects on Stand Structure and Woody Fuel Loadings

Morris Johnson - Research Fire Ecologist, USDA Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station/FERA, Seattle
