American chestnut study comparing bare-root and containerized seedlings

This video was shot on the Nantahala Ranger District of the Nantahala National Forest in western NC. Forest Service Research Forester, Stacy Clark, describes a study that is comparing hybrid American chestnuts bred for blight resistance against pure American chestnut (not blight resistant) and pure Chinese chestnut (blight resistant). For each seedling type (hybrid, American, Chinese), the study is also comparing the effect of container grown seedlings using a patented container method (RPM ®) versus seedlings grown as bareroot nursery seedlings

Why Fire is Good (But You Still Shouldn't Start a Forest Fire)

Smokey's message is clear now - don't start a forest fire. He makes no judgement about whether or not the fire itself is good or bad. That's because we know how important fire is for the ecosystem.

The Oak Stands Tall

The eastern United States' mightiest tree, the oak, is in decline, possibly due to over-harvesting or climate change. Whatever the cause, scientists are trying to find ways to reverse this decline. Watch U.S. Forest Service researcher Tara Keyser and others use fire to give young oaks room to grow in the North Carolina mountains.

A Plan for the North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat)

A Plan for the North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat) provides detailed guidelines for participating in NABat, an international multiagency program created to provide the data needed to make effective decisions about bat populations across the North American continent.

Susan Loeb, SRS research ecologist, served as lead author on the new publication, which represents the first step in establishing the NABat monitoring program for bats in North America.

Managing Southern Pine Ecosystems for Old-Growth-Like Conditions

Scientist Don Bragg discusses how restoration efforts are now one of the primary driving forces in national forest management, and the research programs designed to support this policy. For many, this is a radical departure from the traditions of forestry and silviculture, in large part because of the shift in emphasis from timber harvesting to management for a variety of benefits.
