Forests face various challenges, such as human development and unsustainable logging practices. Fortunately, we can use science-based silviculture management to tackle these issues and improve forest health.
To make forests more resilient to environmental changes, we need to create diverse forest ecosystems. By actively managing areas prone to disturbance and promoting a mosaic of habitats, we can help forests adapt to risks such as fires and pests.
Although our understanding of forest ecology has advanced significantly, forest management has yet to fully incorporate the latest scientific knowledge.
At Perimeter Forest, we work with leaders in forest ecology to implement science-driven practices that can evolve alongside our growing knowledge of forest ecosystems. We also work with universities and researchers by sharing our detailed forestland data; in doing so, our land can act as a living natural laboratory where we can gain new insights about forest ecosystems.
