DescriptionThinnings and periodic burning during the rotation can reduce the need for debris and vegetation management after final harvest. The harvesting of smaller material also reduces the need for such management. Site preparation treatments that leave organic matter and nutrients in place, such as prescribed burning, chopping and herbicide applications, are generally preferred over treatments that pile debris or expose mineral soil to compaction, erosion, leaching and other damages.
