Purpose

Red alder is a valuable timber species, it enhances ecosystem productivity and sustainability via its ability to fix nitrogen, it is immune to conifer root diseases like laminated root rot, it provides essential habitat for a variety of plant and animal species, and, in riparian areas, plays a special role in bank stability and recovery from disturbance. Yet very little is known about active management of red alder. The results of this study apply to natural and planted alder, to plantations, and to spot planting for root rot or biodiversity.
