This document is a result of the Wildlife Tree Committee's concern with the ongoing loss of wildlife tree habitat throughout British Columbia. It is aimed at a wide-ranging technical audience that includes government resource managers, forest industry employees, and other individuals such as woodlot operators, who are involved in forest management activities. This report presents a brief overview of the biology of wildlife trees, looks at the challenge of integrating wildlife tree management into forestry operations, addresses the issues of worker safety (including details about the new Wildlife/Danger Tree Assessor's Course), and introduces some of the latest wildlife tree research projects and educational initiatives.
