    To study the results of interference of strip cutting and single selection systems during the performance of the plan (1993-2003) in the Janbe Sara district, raw data which was collected during two years were compared together. Inventory was done in systematic random way and intensity of 3.3% in...

    The Missouri Ozark Forest Ecosystem Project (MOFEP) is a long-term, landscape-scale study that exemplifies a model of forest research emphasizing interagency and multidiscipline collaboration. Established in 1989 in the Ozark Highlands of southeastern Missouri, MOFEP uses a randomized complete...

    Locating a log landing is an important task in forest operations planning. Several methods have been developed to find an optimal landing location and compute a mean skidding distance, but they simplify harvest unit attributes and do not simultaneously consider multiple design factors...

    Examines the effects of forest harvesting on the net exchange of methane (CH[sub4]) between the atmosphere and sandy soils in two mature slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm. var. elliottii) plantations in northern Florida. Before each of the stem-only harvests, soils in these plantations were net...

    Various patterns of harvest in forests influence the length of road and number of stream crossings required. Snags are removed directly by harvesting, but they are also removed along road and opening edges to ensure worker safety. To assess the potential impacts of rate of harvest and pattern of...

  • Fifty years of partial harvesting in a mixed mesophytic forest: composition and productivity. Schuler, Thomas M. // Canadian Journal of Forest Research;May2004, Vol. 34 Issue 5, p985 

    Long-term silvicultural trials contribute to sustainable forest management by providing a better scientific understanding of how forest ecosystems respond to periodic timber harvesting. In this study, species composition, diversity, and net periodic growth of tree species in a mixed mesophytic...

    Using inventory data from a long-term silviculture experiment in east-central Maine, spatial models were developed to analyze 28 years (1974–2002) of stand structural dynamics. Differences in spatial pattern, species mingling, height differentiation, and relative stand complexity index...

    This paper examines the problem of harvest capacity planning at a tactical level. Annual capacity planning allows planners to determine the number of contractors to hire per period throughout the year and to define the duration of their contracts. In practice, this process usually involves the...
