Title: Reducing logging damage

Author: Cosens, Richard D.;

Publication Series: Forest Research Note

Description: Reducing logging damage to reproduction and residual stands is an important part of harvesting the old-growth forests of California. Much of the over mature timber: is on areas with an acceptable stocking of advance growth. When the old trees are harvested, the advance growth is scarred, deformed, broken, or killed outright. Insects and disease attack the broken and scarred trees, and the quantity and quality of wood grown for the next harvest is reduced. Sometimes the advance growth is so severely damaged that the stand must be regenerated. This is costly and of course extends the time that land owners must wait until the next harvest.
