This handbook brings together information about issues that foresters involved with aspen management in British Columbia are likely to face. This handbook assumes that biodiversity, forest health, and integrated resource management are important objectives for an aspen manager. Aspen has a role in ecosystem functions, even in places where it does not now commercially "serve the needs of the people." The handbook is intended not only for managers interested in harvesting aspen biomass, but also for persons interested in matters such as forest health and biodiversity.
