Big Old Trees and Little Trees

by Dr. Jerry Franklin

Dr. Jerry Franklin, professor of ecosystem processes and forest ecology at the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, University of Washington, will speak about the importance to wildlife and vegetation of big, old trees, based on research of forest lands becoming bare of trees due to drought, wildfire, erosion, windstorms, insect infestations and disease, invasive species, and logging. Dr. Franklin was among the principal architects of the NW Forest Plan. He was appointed by President Clinton to his White House Forest Conference in 1993. That plan significantly decreased cutting of “old growth” trees on federal lands in Washington, Oregon and northern California, to preserve old growth stands and to restore habitat for the Northern Spotted Owl.
