Product description

Wild Logging covers the rudiments of forest management: inventorying your forest and establishing management goals; developing appropriate timber-harvesting methods and hiring a logger to implement them; and managing the forest estate for the future. In engaging interviews, owners of western forestland share their experiences of which practices work and which don't. Technical sidebars cover basics such as how to develop a management plan, protect your property from wildfire, write a timber harvest contract, and reduce forest taxes. An appendix lists sources of public and private assistance to help woodlot owners manage a beautiful, productive, and healthy forest. Includes 32 black-and-white photographs, 21 black-and-white drawings and diagrams, glossary, bibliography, and index.
