    Description

    A large-scale silvicultural assessment designed to examine the effectiveness of five treatments in reducing the potential impacts of gypsy moth infestation and oak decline was implemented on upland hardwood forests in the Daniel Boone National Forest in southeastern Kentucky. The study was authorized via the Healthy Forests Restoration Act of 2003. The goal of the treatments was to improve the health and vigor of the stands through five different prescriptions. Three of the treatments required mechanized harvesting to achieve the desired stand condition, one treatment utilized herbicides to treat the midstory vegetation, and the final treatment was an unaltered control. This paper discusses the harvesting productivity and soil disturbance associated with the three mechanized harvest treatments.
