Harvest operations and soil sustainability: A review

Publications Posted on: January 11, 2021
Soil productivity is essential to the sustained production of forest ecosystem goods and services. Timber harvests may lead to negative ecological impacts to the soil environment, thus reducing both soil and forest long-term productivity. Impacts caused by timber harvests are site-specific, and soil monitoring at various times post-harvest is critical to understanding both short- and long-term damage.

Wyoming's forest products industry and timber harvest, 2000

Publications Posted on: June 22, 2020
This report traces the flow of Wyoming's 2000 timber harvest through the primary wood-using industries; provides a description of the structure, capacity, and condition of Wyoming's primary forest products industry; and quantifies volumes and uses of wood fiber. Historical wood products industry changes are discussed, as well as changes in harvest, production, and sales.

Utilization of Oregon’s timber harvest and associated direct economic effects.

Publications Posted on: June 22, 2020
With more than 16 million acres of commercial timberland, Oregon’s forest products industry is an important part of Oregon’s economy and a major player in the Nation’s wood products market.

Logging utilization in Arizona and New Mexico, 2012-2017: Current and past trends

Publications Posted on: May 01, 2020
A study of commercial timber-harvesting sites in Arizona and New Mexico was conducted from 2012 to 2017 to estimate growing-stock removals, characterize current tree utilization and logging operations, and assist with estimating the amount of woody biomass left on-site after harvesting. Fifty-four sample logging sites were selected within major geographic regions proportional to regional five-year timber harvests.

The effect of timber harvest on the range resource

Publications Posted on: January 22, 2020
My work is primarily concentrated at the Manatwa Forest, in the ponderosa pine zone about 28 miles northwest of Rock Springs. The area is primarily cattle grazing land, with most of the grazing occurring in the natural openings of the pine zone. Additional livestock grazing occurs in the small openings among the trees, and very little underneath the dense canopy.

Minimizing the adverse impacts of timber harvest in the northern Rocky Mountains

Documents and Media Posted on: October 17, 2018
A new model, NUTROSS, has been developed to evaluate nutrient losses from harvest of aboveground biomass of trees in the northern Rocky Mountains. The model is useful in low-precipitation forest zones with little or no solution losses to streams. It is based on the assumption that materials not removed in harvest will be available to supply nutrients through mineralization to grow the same ecosystem components in the next rotation.Document Type: Other Documents
