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, ...
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 ...
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 ...
Soil properties in site prepared loblolly pine (Pines taeda L.) stands 25 years after wet weather harvesting in the lower Atlantic coastal plain
Harvesting traffic may alter soil properties and reduce forest productivity if soil disturbances are not mitigated. Logging operations were conducted during high soil moisture conditions on the South Carolina, USA coast ...
Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) productivity 23 years after wet site harvesting and site preparation in the lower Atlantic coastal plain
Ground based timber harvesting on wet sites has been linked to alteration of soil properties that may result in reduced long term site productivity. Following Hurricane Hugo in the fall of 1989, numerous salvage logging ...
