Visual Resource Management is about managing perceptions by making human made intrusions look as natural as possible, while meeting other forest management objectives. Many jurisdictions around the world manage for aesthetics and have developed procedures, policies and technologies for managing this resource. Looking Beyond the Trees: Visual Stewardship of the Working Forest held at Kamloops, British Columbia April 18 & 19 2001, brought together leading experts and researchers, from around North America and the United Kingdom. Through a mixture of plenary and break out sessions, speakers proposed technological solutions, answered operational issues and shared research findings on seven subject areas: - Public Perceptions - Visualization Technology - Silvicultural Systems - Stewardship/Certification - Visual Design - Economics - Policy Influences In all 27 different papers were presented.
