 Product Description

Today's public and private forest-land owners are placing greater emphasis on ecological, recreational, and aesthetic values than on timber production. This publication addresses planning and conducting a timber harvest to minimize the disruptive effects of cutting and removing trees on a forest. Topics covered include concerns, solutions, truck roads, landings, skid trails, tree felling, administration and planning, and costs. Also included are fifty full-color photos, a glossary, references, and a list of state agencies that can provide further assistance. (1993)

Many woodland owners are reluctant to harvest their timber for fear of destroying the natural beauty, recreational values, and wildlife habitat. With fifty color photographs and text, A Guide to Logging Aesthetics: Practical Tips for Loggers, Foresters, and Landowners, NRAES-60, describes cost-effective and proven practices that minimize the negative impacts during and immediately after the harvest while enhancing the wildlife, recreational, and aesthetic qualities of the woodlot. The guide fills a gap in forest management literature for private woodlot owners as well as foresters and loggers.

The guide also describes programs administered by county Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS) offices that assist with the cost of seeding disturbed land to control soil erosion. Contact information for the state SCS offices, state foresters, extension foresters associated with land grant universities, and ASCS state offices is included in the appendix of the guide for the twenty states in the northeast and north central regions.

The guide was written by Geoffrey T. Jones of the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests (SPNHF). The project was a collaboration among the SPNHF, the Northeast Forest Resources Extension Council, the New Hampshire State Foresters Office, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Natural Resouce, Agriculture, and Engineering Service (NRAES).

This publication was awarded a blue ribbon in the 1993 ASAE Educational Aids Competition.
