DescriptionMaintenance standards for roads within the national forests in the East have, until recently, included annual mowing of the shoulders. One or occasionally two passes with a mower carrying a 5-foot cutter bar were made on each side of the road. Costs for this kind of operation were about $16 per road mile per year.
