Coarse Woody Debris (CWD) is a major contributor to structural diversity in forest stands and provides habitats for plants and mammals. It is an important nutrient and moisture pool, and in some ecosystems, may be a nutrient fixation site. Weldwood has made a commitment to sustainable forestry through their CSA certification. One commitment is to develop an indicator for CWD. The information collect on CWD will be used to determine the amount of CWD required on the Weldwood DFA.
