The Mixedwood Project Team is continuing the work of the Mixedwood Management Association, which addressed practical and scientific issues around managing mixedwood stands to sustain their mixed-species characteristics.
The Mixedwood Management Association officially came into existence in 2001 with eight member companies and Alberta Sustainable Resource Development. Hosted by the Alberta Research Council for the first two years and then the University of Alberta until 2015, when it amalgamated with FGrOW.
The Mixedwood project team has three goals:
- Increase knowledge through financial and in-kind support of basic and applied research.
- Enhance the forest community’s understanding of mixedwood through support for workshops and conferences.
- Increase information collection, sharing, dissemination, and its application to day-to-day forest management activities.
