 Forest Best Management Practices

   
Show Articles on Forest Best Management Practices (25)
Forest* A *Syst

Forest*A*Syst is a self-assessment guide, designed for a national audience, with the goals of helping new forest landowners articulate their objectives in a written management plan and foster a working relationship with a resource professional who can provide them with technical assistance. The national document was intended to serve as a protocol for state forestry agencies to follow as they developed their own state-specific Forest*A*Syst document and programming. Only a few states adopted the concept and produced their own printed version of Forest*A*Syst.
  Profile Your Land

 

Controlling Invasive Species
By:

It is often difficult for landowners to cultivate desirable plant species on their property. An even more frustrating task is keeping unwanted plants at bay.

 

Developing a Forest Management Plan
By:

Whether you are an experienced woodland owner or are just starting out, there is no substitute for the guidance and direction provided by a forest management plan.

 

Pruning Your Forest Trees
By:

Pruning is removing branches of a standing tree flush with the outside of the branch collar. When pruning is done to increase income, trees that will grow to sawtimber size and quality are pruned.

 

Weeding and Thinning Young Forest Stands
By:

Weeding and thinning are forestry practices that improve forest stand quality by removing undesirable species and poor quality individuals of desirable species.

 

Landowner's Guide to Building Forest Access Roads
By:

This guide is designed for landowners in the northeastern United States who will use a tractor and ordinary earth moving equipment to build the simplest access roads on their property, or who will contract for these services.

 

Best Management Practices for Forestry: Protecting Maine’s Water Quality
By:

This handbook describes Best Management Practices, or BMPs, for protecting water quality during forest harvests. The BMPs include a wide range of recommended techniques that can be used before, during, and after logging operations.

 

Everything You Know About Timber Harvest is Probably Wrong
By:

The problem is all the people who don’t understand the body of science behind timber management and who become highly agitated whenever they see trees being harvested.

 

Developing a Forest Stewardship Plan: The key to forest management
By:

Forest stewardship is the management of forest resources in a way that meets the needs of the current owners, but does not adversely affect use by future generations.

 

High Grade Harvesting: Understand the impacts, know your options
By:

As a landowner, you may be approached by a logger or forester to have a “high grade” harvest of your woods, which they typically call “selective cutting.& ...

 

After the Fires: Hydrophobic Soils
By:

Hydrophobic soils repel water. A thin layer of soil at or below the mineral soil surface can become hydrophobic after intense heating. The hydrophobic layer is the result of a waxy substance that is derived from plant material burned during a hot fire.

 

Caring for Your Forest With a Forest Stewardship Plan
By:

If you own or manage forest land, you are probably concerned about keeping it productive and healthy now and in the years to come. Like many forest landowners, you may want to sustain or increase the economic value of your forest while protecting environmental assets such as wildlife and clean water.

 

CP 33 Habitat Buffers for Upland Birds

CP-33 Habitat Buffers for Upland Birds is available under the United States Department of Agriculture Continuous Conservation Reserve Program (CCRP).

 

New England Forests: The Path to Sustainability
By:

New England’s forests are the ultimate green resource for sustainability. Right now they are an underappreciated, underutilized resource.

By:

 

Using Conservation Easements to Protect Working Forests
By:

For decades, conservation easements have protected open space values such as wildlife habitat, ecological diversity, recreational access and aesthetics.

 

Smallholder agroforestry plots may boost tree conservation: Report
By:

When natural forests are threatened by deforestation or climate change, the best hope for the survival of certain at risk tree species may be to include them in agroforestry plots managed by small farmers, according to new research.

 

Working Trees for Agriculture
By:

Putting trees to work in conservation and production systems for farms, ranches, and nearby communities means planting the right trees, in the right places and in the correct design to achieve desired objectives.

 

Tim's Tips: Use of Wedges
By:

The use of wedges in logging has a long history. The mechanics involved are quite simple. Depending on the height and diameter of the tree, it is possible to fell it in a direction opposite of its lean with a wedge that gives no more than one inch of lift.

 

Regenerating Hardwood Forests
By:

Managing Competing Plants, Deer, and Light.

 

Romancing the Crop Tree
By:

Foresters and  landowners alike desire alternatives to traditional silviculture techniques, and it may come as a relief to foresters and the public as well that there is an array of literature residing between the un-easy bookends of selection and clear cutting that remains to be written.

 

Prescribed Fire Associations
By:

A Prescribed Fire Association is a group of landowners and other concerned citizens that form a partnership to conduct prescribed burns. Prescribed burning is the key land management tool used to restore and maintain native plant communities to their former diversity and productivity for livestock production and wildlife habitat.

Forest* A *Syst

Forest*A*Syst is a self-assessment guide, designed for a national audience, with the goals of helping new forest landowners articulate their objectives in a written management plan and foster a working relationship with a resource professional who can provide them with technical assistance. The national document was intended to serve as a protocol for state forestry agencies to follow as they developed their own state-specific Forest*A*Syst document and programming. Only a few states adopted the concept and produced their own printed version of Forest*A*Syst.

Don’t Move Firewood

Trees are being destroyed through the transportation of invasive insects & diseases in firewood. One of the most important things we can do to protect trees is stop moving invasive pests and diseases to new areas on firewood. It’s really that simple- don't move firewood, and keep trees healthy and alive. Forests are great places to play, but they also keep our air clean and our water pure. We must protect them by not moving firewood, so our kids, grandkids and great-grandkids can enjoy these amazing places like we do.

The Don't Move Firewood campaign is managed on a day-to-day basis by The Nature Conservancy's Forest Health Protection Program staff. Don't Move Firewood as a whole was begun, and is advised, by the Continental Dialogue on Non-native Insects and Diseases. To learn more, visit our About Us page. To see how we are funded, visit our Funding page. Visit http://www.dontmovefirewood.org for more information.
