Title: Visual quality assessment of alternative silvicultural practices in upland hardwood management

Author: McDonald, Tim; Stokes, Bryce;

Date: 1997

Source: Forest operations for sustainable forests and healthy economies; Proceedings, Council on Forest Engineering, 20th annual meeting: 165-169.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Visual impacts of forest operations are of increasing concern to forest managers. Tools are available for evaluating, and potentially avoiding, problems in visual quality resulting from poorly designed harvest unit boundaries. One of these visualization tools is applied in comparing various harvest unit shape alternatives in an upland hardwood stand on steeply sloping ground. Visualization tools were found to be most suited to placing small leave strips within larger clearcuts for obscuring some areas from view and giving the impression of a series of smaller cutting units.
