Snag management definition

Snag management means producing more snags in a forest where snags are uncommon. From a strict timber perspective, snags are trees that could have been merchantable had timber been the only management goal and management implementation was perfect. As a legacy of our forest history, many of our forests remain in younger, more vigorous age classes. Snags become increasingly common as forests grow older. Forests of short-lived species already display an abundance of snags. The presence of snags in longer-lived forests can sometimes be accelerated through management. Snags in short-lived forests are usually retained during timber harvest.
