Abstract

Since its inception in 1973, the National Silviculture Workshop (NSW) has brought together forest managers and researchers from across the USDA Forest Service, and more recently our university and other partners, to provide a forum for information sharing and science advancements in silviculture. The 2019 NSW focused specifically on this partnership with the theme "Forest Management-Research Partnerships" in Bemidji, MN. With nearly 300 participants, this proceedings and that of the Journal of Forestry special section (Volume 118, Issue 3), highlight some of the best outcomes of our history of working together, as well as its challenges, and opportunities for the future. The objectives of the workshop included 1) providing a forum to showcase successful partnerships and shared stewardship between forest managers and researchers, 2) enhancing these relationships within the Agency and with our external partners to meet shared goals and objectives, 3) building on the Forest Service strategic objectives for improving the conditions of forests through innovative silviculture and active forest management, and 4) identifying emerging forest management needs to guide future research investment. This report includes of 22 papers (including two from 2017 NSW) and 6 paneldiscussion summaries. The report also includes two papers from the 2017 NSW, "Silviculture: The Foundation for Restoration, Resilience, and Climate Adaptation" held in Flagstaff, AZ.
