The United States is not on track to meet the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS2) targets for advanced biofuels production under the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of (Biofuels Interagency Working Group, ). Our agricultural and forestry sectors can provide feedstock to support the fledgling industry (Perlack et al., ). Four levels of monitoring are used for evaluating the effectiveness of forestry BMP's in meeting water-quality goals or standards: BMP I, II, III and IV (Table 3). They are defined as follows: BMP Effectiveness I uses empirical observations and a limited amount of qualitative data to evaluate effectiveness.
Initial thinning effects in to year-old Douglas-fir--western Oregon and Washington. Treesearch. Richard L. Williamson; Frank E. Price. Vigorous, mature (post-rotation age) Douglas-fir stands will probably exist for another 50 years or more on some properties in western Oregon and Washington. Intermediate harvests in the form. The northern flying squirrel as an indicator species of temperate rain forest: test of an hypothesis.. Treesearch. Winston P. Smith; Scott M. Gende; Jeffrey V. Nichols. Management indicator species (MIS) often are selected because their life history and demographics are thought to reflect a suite of ecosystem conditions that are too difficult or costly to measure directly.
EPA / MONITORING GUIDELINES TO EVALUATE EFFECTS OF FORESTRY ACTIVITIES ON STREAMS IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND ALASKA LEE H. MACDONALD WITH ALAN W. SMART AND ROBERT C. WISSMAR These Guidelines were developed for Reg U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Seattle, Washington, under EPA Assistance No. CX . All stands contained second growth Douglas-fir and were of similar age class ( years). The characteristics of each site under study are shown in Acuna and Murphy (in press). After felling, disks approximately mm thick were cut at regular intervals up each stem: at 0, , 5, 10, 20, and 30 metres above the base of the tree.

The pro- gram included a number of different studies aimed at providing scientific information on how naturally-generated, second-growth coastal Douglas-fir, Pseudotsuga menzie- sii (Mirb. Franco), stands should be harvested for sustainable forestry.
The soil nema- tode study formed part of the biodiversity component of the research by: Typically in young structurally simple second-growth forests such as lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) that arise after clearcut harvesting or wildfire in the.

With a view to reducing the time needed to produce planting stock, experiments were carried out with white spruce and three other coniferous species from Wisconsin seed in the longer, frost-free growing season in Florida, vs. days in central Wisconsin and northern Florida, respectively.
Results. MOE was negatively correlated with diameter and taper, and positively correlated with acoustic velocity, V. The relationship with V 2, following the wave equation (MOE = ρV 2) under the assumption of constant density, ρ, was no better than that with the correlations suggest that thinning regimes that cause rapid diameter growth and increased taper may be susceptible to a Cited by: 9.
To have greater predictive abilities for informed resource management guidelines for freshwater species protection and management, we need to increase our limited knowledge of the many aquatic species that inhabit small coastal streams.
Coastal cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii clarkii) are common to small streams in the Pacific Northwest and are a species of concern or threatened. The effect of laminated (Phellinus) root rot in coastal second growth Douglas-fir ecosystems of southeastern Vancouver Island was investigated in ecosystems centered around growth and yield permanent sample plots (PSP's).
The impact of Phellinus root rot on stand productivity was estimated from PSP records and a percent basal area reduction (%BAR) parameter estimate.
Most of the pine plantations are concentrated in South Brazil, with % and % of the total reforested area located in Paraná and Santa Catarina states .Pinus taeda L., also known as loblolly pine, is the most planted forest specie in these regions.
It has high economic importance due to its high volumetric increment in the colder regions of the southern Brazil .Cited by: Full text of "Paul Stamets Growing Gourmet And Medicinal Mushrooms " See other formats.
Conversely, voles taken from Douglas-fir stands have been observed to eat both Douglas-fir and western hemlock in captivity (Clifton Start Printed Pagep. 44; Maserpers. comm.), although voles appear to be reluctant to switch between tree species (Walkerp.

Mountains) continuous weight record was obtained for snow load on suspended trees (Douglas-fir and white pine). About 1/3 of the snowfall was temporarily intercepted.
Losses to the atmosphere were and % for Douglas-fir and white pine respectively. About 86% of the snow ultimately reached the. Forest biomass is a promising feedstock for the production of biofuels and bioproducts because it is widely available as a byproduct of timber harvests and forest restoration and fuel treatments, is renewable, and has lower impacts on food production and land use than some agricultural feedstocks.
Furthermore, widespread commercial production of biofuels and bioproducts from forest biomass has. In addition, at Decema subsidiary of the Company has unused tax losses carried forward of approximately $ million (Decem - $ million) expiring between and which are available to reduce taxable income and capital losses of approximately $ million (Decem - $ million) which are.
Understanding the Difference between Inventory Cruising and Pre-harvest Cruising This distinction is important and it is based on how soon the cruise information is to be applied. For a pre-harvest cruise, it most often will be used in the next 1 month to 3 years.
An inventory cruise will be maintained and grown for years or longer. COSEWIC. COSEWIC assessment and status report on the Mountain Beaver Aplodontia rufa in Canada. Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada.

Pre-Harvest Assessment based on LiDAR Data (–) distance of 25 m, the cable corridor has a total area of about ha, of which about ha consists of stocked forest.
Our results also indicate that old oak forests may be active carbon sinks to help reduce the buildup of anthropogenic carbon. Evidence of trees representing three species (1/2 maximum known age with accelerated growth lends justification for conservation of the many old, second-growth forests in the eastern US landscape.

The significance testing procedure described by Gjarati () and Swindel () was used to test for equality between sets of linear coefficients (slopes and intercepts) using the F-statistic.
In the second-growth reaches, nutrient retention was slightly higher in the unconstrained reach, where about 26 ug/L of released nitrogen was retained in m. However, nutrient retention was quite high in the constrained reach as well (18 ug NH4-NL m), in particular when compared to the constrained reach in the old-growth.
