Timber harvesting technology: Environmental and site preparation costs
Reforestation IS a critical need m many areas of the world. Where intensive forestry is practiced. after timber is harvested the land must be prepared for reforestation. Site preparation costs, are influenced by the amount of biomass remaining after harvest Timber and pulp products are removed by comparing costs and values per unit. Harvest intensity is therefore influenced by forest products demand and by timber harvesting and transportation costs. More reforestation and less environmental damage may result when timber harvesting and site preparation are Jointly considered.
