Abstract

The contents of this document have been compiled from material gathered from the 1970s to the 1990s, and entered on the LOGS website, which was created and maintained by the Canadian Forest Service. In September 2011, due to increased web accessibility requirements, NRCan conducted a stringent review of its web content to accommodate a 50% reduction of its overall web presence. As a result, many CFS subsites, including those for LOGS, have been archived or adapted for delivery in alternative formats.

The Levels-of-Growing-Stock (LOGS) Co-operative study is the result of collaboration between scientists and researchers from the Canadian Forest Service, the US Forest Service, the Weyerhaeuser Company, Washington State Department of Natural Resources, Oregon State University, and the Canadian Forest Service in partnership with the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. The study spans an 800 km latitudinal gradient and 40 years’ of data collection. LOGS data have been used in numerous publications, such as reports and scientific articles, to test and refine research theory and practice in growth and yield, silviculture, ecophysiology, and forest ecology. As of 2012, scientists from both sides of the border are researching wood quality and fibre properties using five LOGS locations. The LOGS Co-operative is one of many projects made possible through the establishment and maintenance of long-term research installations.
