The Forest Bridges plan will create a diverse range of habitats based on the historical condition. These habitats will support a full range of wild species.
In wet forests, a metered amount of new and pre-forest habitats would be produced annually to benefit species including deer, elk, birds, pollinators, small mammals and other fauna. Additionally, structurally complex old stands would be increased to benefit spotted owls, spotted frogs, salmon and steelhead, and other endangered species. Diverse middle-aged, mature forests would benefit species who require this type of habitat.
