This handbook summarizes information about techniques for management of red alder in British Columbia. This handbook assumes that biodiversity, forest health, and integrated resource management are important objectives for anyone involved with red alder management. Alder has a role in ecosystem processes, even in places where it does not now commercially "serve the needs of the people". This handbook is intended for persons interested in matters such as forest health and biodiversity, as well as for managers interested in harvesting alder biomass.
