Healthy Landscapes Concepts and Application

This interpretation project develops and tests a new planning approach inspired by ecosystem-based principles.

In this interpretation project we develop and test a new planning approach inspired by ecosystem-based principles. The proposed Healthy Landscape (HL) approach blends two innovative new elements:

  1. A temporal grid-based system of “go” and “no-go” zones for management activities.
  2. A disturbance plan in which forest harvesting, linear feature restoration, and industrial activity avoidance are tools with which to create a shared desired future landscape.
