Variable density thinning projects were conducted from 2000 – 2013 in young forest that was clearcut harvested since about 1971. Many of these forest patches were adjacent to old-growth forest. This thinning to mimic more natural forest development should help reduce the habitat fragmentation caused by the timber harvest.
