1.  There will never be enough scientific evidence.
2.  Just because a management technique is unproven, doesn't mean it
can't work.
3.  The key here is monitoring, monitoring, monitoring! 

Management plans need to be flexible and adaptable, especially for long
term projects like managing a forest. Any plan that is inflexible,
doesn't have a GOOD monitoring program, doesn't empower the people on
the ground (who know their area the best), and doesn't adapt to changes
in knowledge/techniques/etc. is doomed to be ineffective in the long

Just my 2 cents.
