About the Conference

The coast redwood forest type is unique to California and extreme
southwest Oregon.  Society values a broad spectrum of resources inherent
in the coast redwood forest, including  natural history, wood products,
aesthetics, and variety of plants and animals.  However, the amount of
published work on coast redwood has not matched the interest in its
resources.  

The Conference on Coast Redwood Forest Ecology and Management is the first
of its kind for the region.  In the plenary sessions, invited speakers
will address the paleohistory of redwood, dynamic processes that influence
redwood forests, the current status of the redwood type, wildlife, the
human perspective, and the history of the redwood preservation movement.  


Contributed technical papers and posters will present the latest research
on watershed processes, forest management, silvicultural systems,
terrestrial and aquatic organisms associated with the type, forest
products, coast redwood biology, park management, and restoration. 


Published Proceedings will follow shortly after the conference.


Who Should Attend?


Anyone interested in the resources of the coast redwood forest, including
resource professionals from private industry, state and federal agencies,
universities, landowners, and the public.
