DescriptionConsiderable effort is devoted to evaluating cumulative watershed impacts during planning for forestry activities on federally managed lands. With the recently increased emphasis on reducing forest fuels, cumulative impact analyses must now evaluate a new suite of activities over a broader scale than had generally been considered in the past. It is useful to review the concept of cumulative impacts and the variety of methods used for impact analysis to identify approaches capable of addressing the new challenges.
