      Trees hold water and topsoil. The Practice of Silviculture, 7 ed. This research was the result of collaboration among Forest Service and university researchers on the most studied watershed in the Lab's year history. Minnecologies tc11 March UTC Given the encyclopedia's approach it's essential we do include general definitions. Slash-and-burn entails the removal of all stems in a particular area. Perhaps we should chop the article into the different perspectives on clearcutting.

      But leaving this theory and entering the reality of Humboldt County was disorienting. Clearcutting removes the forest, exposing the tiny tree seedlings to extreme heat, cold, dryness, and wind, killing them, and leaving once healthy forested areas barren. But there is a gradual reduction of shade-intolerant trees and understory plants However, it also is apparent that misuse of stem-only clearcutting can lead to necessary short- and long-term degradation of the forest ecosystem.

      Efforts to reserve old growth forests as habitat for the threatened northern spotted owl and other species have intensified the controversy, because clearcutting and other even-aged silvicultural techniques fragment wildlife habitat and because the area of old growth forest continues to decline. When the roads required by the clearcutting were factored in, the increase in slide activity appeared to be about 5 times greater compared to nearby forested areas. It almost sounds like clearing-cutting is used for the health of the forest. Additionally, clearcutting can be the preferred option to harvest and regenerate entire areas where nearly all the overstory trees are very unhealthy, dying, or dead—when such trees are so unhealthy that any other partial-cut harvesting of the area could not be successfully reforested.

Clearcutting book

As in farming monocrops, repeated applications of toxic chemicals are used to prevent the process of natural succession, that is, to stop the natural diversity of plants and trees from returning.

The Debate Over Clear

The primary non-timber use of forests is for recreation, but surprisingly little research has documented the effects of the various silvicultural systems on recreation patterns and levels. I will be submitting this to the negative part of clear cutting just to give information while staying away from bias interactions.

The information from those Forest Service data is summarized here:! Increasingly, private lands are being leased for hunting, leading to potential landowner profits from timber harvesting that benefits game species. Research has continued to develop and assess alternative approaches: Silviculturists are challenged as never before by a multiplicity of man- agement objectives and by recent scientific insights into forest ecosystems and landscapes Shoddy, exploitive clearcutting is clearly one of the more destructive forest management practices In many regions of the country, these large slash piles are burned in huge smoldering fires, creating tremendous air pollution, and destroying forever the genetic blueprints of the local populations of the wide variety of plants and animals that lived in the area.

The discovery of gold in California triggered a vast migration of people equivalent to "two successive earthquakes of awesome magnitude. Kinloch21 talk16 November UTC We did not want to go into to much information of the Amazon and the effects on biodiversity or the indigenous peoples due to bias claims that were mentioned above in the talk page.

Clearcutting the California Dream

Instead, foresters carefully prescribe harvest and regeneration methods, including clearcuts, to manage forest areas using methods that mimic natural disturbances, while producing desired timber yields and protecting key resources.

My years with the US Environmental Protection Agency had taught me of the intricate legal schemes corporations insert into the country's laws to force the government to do their bidding.

To meet research needs. Sometimes individual living trees are injected with poison to kill them. These monoculture stands of trees are extremely susceptible to massive infestations by pests and diseases, which then prompts the Forest Service to cut down uninfested as well as infested trees.

Water quality characteristics most affected by timber harvesting are sediment loads, dissolved nutrients, and water temperature.
