This work is an integral component of our adaptive management and monitoring program. First-year post harvest assessments at VRAM sites identify which trees were cut, which trees (and decay stage) were retained, and provides a measure of windthrow that has occurred in the first year following harvest. Plot and transect locations are also re-established to assist in planned 5th-year assessments.
