Title: Machine for row-mulching logging slash to enhance site- a concept

Author: Koch, P.; McKenzie, D.W.;

Date: 1977

Source: Transactions of the ASAE 20(1):13-17

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Proposes that stumps, tops, and branches residual after logging pine plantations be hogged to build mulch beds spaced on about 2.5-m centers, thereby eliminating pile and bum operations. Growth of seedlings planted through mulch beds should be accelerated because of moisture conservation, weed suppression, and minimum disturbance of topsoil.
