Characteristics of Logging Businesses across Virginia’s Diverse Physiographic Regions
Logging businesses play an important role in implementing forest management plans and delivering the raw material needed by forest products mills. Understanding the characteristics of the logging workforce can help forest ...
Forestry Best Management Practices Relationships with Aquatic and Riparian Fauna: A Review
Forestry best management practices (BMPs) were developed to minimize water pollution from forestry operations by primarily addressing sediment and sediment transport, which is the leading source of pollution from silviculture. ...
Suitability of Soil Erosion Models for the Evaluation of Bladed Skid Trail BMPs in the Southern Appalachians
This project measured soil erosion rates from bladed skid trails in the mountains of Virginia following a timber harvest, and compared measured erosion to four erosion model predictions produced by Universal Soil Loss ...
Comparing Sediment Trap Data With Erosion Models for Evaluation of Forest Haul Road Stream Crossing Approaches
(AMER SOC AGRICULTURAL & BIOLOGICAL ENGINEERS, 2017-01-01)
Soil erosion and sediment delivery models have been developed to estimate the inherent complexities of soil erosion, but most models are not specifically modified for forest operation applications. Three erosion models, ...
