This analysis will allow licensees to evaluate their situation in achieving the targets for Landscape Units in accordance with the Old Growth Order, but no licensee is obligated to roll this information up across the Forest District - this would be something that MoFR or ILMB might do. The benefit of doing it this way is that all parties in the District end up with a similar data set and a reproducible process for ongoing monitoring and evaluation of the LU targets. The actual work is to update the age, attribute, activity, and opening fields in a forest cover data set to Dec 31, 2005; carry out patch and seral stage distribution analysis by landscape unit and forest development unit; and trend the data forward for a five year period, including projected harvesting.
