In recent decades, the populations of many migrant songbirds have been declining as a result of forest fragmentation. To correct this problem, the importance of protecting large, unfragmented forests for breeding habitat is emphasized. It is proposed that low-volume selective logging be used as an alternative to clear-cutting. Further, logging roads should be closed and revegetated soon after harvest, and rotation times should be lengthened to permit regeneration of large, old trees.
