  The practices to use should consider the following applications:
  1. Maintain structural diversity elements in our forests to provide suitable habitat conditions to meet most needs of the native species in the forest 

  2. Apply specific habitat management practices to protect endangered species 

  3. Apply practices that emulate natural disturbances patterns to maintain ecosystem functions 

  4. Maintain structural diversity with partial cutting and reserve areas that are appropriate for locally occurring species. 

  5. Apply forest management practices that reflect local natural disturbance patterns. 

  6. Use a diversity of forest management regimes. 

  7. Use partial cutting to maintain a variety of stand structure, conditions and dynamics.
