ABSTRACT: This document provides guidance for forest professionals who will plan and implement retention strategies in areas that have experienced extensive natural disturbances. Retention planning refers to the required planning for landscape connectivity, interior forest and intact ecosystem attributes (e.g., overstory trees, vegetation communities, soils and other live and decaying forest structure) that will be retained for habitat, hydrologic function, mid-term timber supply and to support recovery at stand and landscape scales. We provide this guidance now due to the need for retention planning to guide salvage logging in areas affected by the 2017 wildfires.
