A New Approach to Forest Restoration in the American Southwest.. Many scientists, forest managers, political leaders, and concerned citizens agree that there is urgent need to protect human communities from severe wildfire events and to restore natural fire regimes and ecosystem function in forests of the American Southwest.. However, given the high cost of using selective thinning and prescribed fire to restore even a few hundred acres, it is appropriate to question whether any given site-specific project is really the best use of the limited resources available.. Forest Ecosystem Restoration Analysis (ForestERA)..  ...   a collaborative process that views forest ecosystems from a landscape perspective to discover better ways to restore their health and protect our communities.. Stakeholders representing diverse backgrounds, priorities, needs, and points of view work together in small groups using the best scientific information and tools available.. Participants view spatial data in map form in order to weigh various fire, community, wildlife, watershed and other factors important in landscape-scale prioritization and decision-making.. This process results in a detailed, integrated action plan that reflects multiple inputs, value and points of view.. PO Box 5694.. Building 56/Suite 220.. Flagstaff, Arizona 86011..

  • Title: Northern Arizona Forest Ecosystem Restoration Analysis
    Descriptive info: Analysis of Small-Diameter Wood Supply in Northern arizona, USA.. In response to growing interest in building agreement on cost-effective ways to improve forest health while supporting appropriate-scaled industry, a broad coalition of stakeholders called for a multi-jurisdictional study of small-diameter wood supply, focusing on ponderosa pine, in northen Arizona.. With guidance from a diverse five-member Steering Committe, the Forest Ecosystem Restoraton Analysis (ForestERA) Project at NAU designed and implemented a 7-month, collaborator driven analysis.. Seven public meetings with Working Group members were held at three different location in northern Arizona from June through November 2007.. The project objectives were to:.. Mobilize the best-available science to  ...   Working Group comprised of agency representatives and community, industry and other stakeholders, in a collaborative process to build agreement on appropriate restoration treatments to facilitate the removal of small-diameter woody biomass.. Estimate the volume of small-diameter woody material which would be removed following collaboratively developed restoration treatment scenarios.. Survey and recommend forest growth models to inform forecasted increases in wood volume.. For data products from this project please visit our.. products.. ,.. page under the Wood Supply section.. This project was led by Haydee Hampton, who also participated as co-investigator and research associate on other ForestERA Projects.. Haydee can be reached at Haydee.. Hampton@nau.. edu..

    Descriptive info: North-central New Mexico Landscape Assessment, usa.. The North-central New Mexico Landscape Assessment conducted in 2004-06 was a collaborative, landscape-scale effort that engaged stakeholders in a series of meeting and workshops to identify and prioritize areas of forest and associated lands in greatest need of management attention.. The focal landscape assessment area included public, tribal and private lands within a 3.. 4 million-acre study region.. Our 2-year process culminated in a three-day workshop in October 2006, where over 50 regional stakeholders were convened to address these issues using a.. spatial decision support system.. designed by the Forest Ecosystem Restoration Analysis (ForestERA) Project at NAU.. ForestERA staff, along with staff from the Bureau of Land Management, Forest Guild and the  ...   while remaining grounded in the needs of local stakeholders.. The North-central New Mexico Landscape Assessment represented one of the first efforts in the nation to engage stakeholders in a collaborative, landscape-scale assessment of public lands using a dynamic map-based interactive and integrative science-based approach.. It is also unique in that it addressed several national policy directives simultaneously.. The broad concurrence in stakeholder values and perceived risks that were identified during this spaitally explict process provided an unprecedented opportunity to inform and integrate planning efforts in the region at multiple spatial scales.. Products from this effort, including the Spatial Data Atlas and final report or requests for relevant spatial data are available from our.. page under the New Mexico section..

  • Title: Northern Arizona Forest Ecosystem Restoration Analysis
    Descriptive info: Western mogollon plateau landscape assessment, arizona, usa.. The purpose of the Western Mogollon Plateau Adaptive Landscape Assessment (WMPALA) conducted from 2002 to 2004 was to generate landscape-scale forest restoration and community protection guidance for decision-makers using a collaborative, science-based approach.. The assessment area encompassed approximately two million acres of ponderosa pine-dominated forests in north-central Arizona, and included large portions of the Coconino, Apache-Sitgreaves, Tonto, and Kaibab National Forests, in addition to other land ownerships.. The initial workshop in the WMPALA process took the first step in developing this guidance by identifying critical features across the Western Mogollon Plateau that need protection from severe wildfire or other risk factors.. The workshop explored  ...   and disease outbreaks.. Outcomes from the WMPALA process are the products of diverse stakeholders working together in four independent groups, each having access to comprehensive and consistent datasets, and each having the invaluable insight of experts from different specialty areas, as well as perspectives from local residents and those who know the land well.. The collaborative process employed was fairly straightforward, yet it incorporated tremendous complexity - complexity in information, values, analysis, debate and synthesis.. No previous effort has drawn on so much information and produced such specificity and general agreement in such short time.. For WMPALA products such as data atlas, final report and publications, please see our.. GIS data..
