Restoring Arizona’s Forests Digital Restoration Guide

Restoring Arizonas Forests Digital Restoration Guide

The Nature Conservancy is working to accelerate the pace and scale of forest restoration within the 2.4 million acre Four Forest Restoration Initiative. Implementation bottlenecks include the low value of small-diameter wood and associated biomass and the tentative social acceptance of large-scale treatments. The Digital Restoration Guide, an integration of existing and emerging technologies, addresses these bottlenecks by improving wood harvester efficiency, increasing the amount of acreage prepared for treatments, and obtaining new field operations data to better inform adaptive management.
