Guidelines are provided to help forest managers and silviculturists develop even- and/or uneven-aged cutting practices needed to convert old-growth and mixed ponderosa pine forests in the Front Range into managed stands for a variety of resource needs. Guidelines consider stand conditions, and insect and disease susceptibility. Cutting practices are designed to integrate maintained water quality, improved wildlife habitat, and enhanced opportunities for recreation and scenic viewing, with providing wood products.
