When management activities such as timber harvest are undertaken on National Forest lands, landscape architects establish plans and guidelines so the project will meet a desired level of visual quality. This visual quality objective (VQO) for a given project is based on forest conditions, topography, and the type of viewing that is anticipated (viewing distance, number.

The results indicate that nearly all the groups have similar rank orderings of the scenes in terms of visual preference.

Benefits to visual quality: Timber harvesting guidelines can moderate the potential adverse visual quality impacts from timber harvest-ing activities and help reduce the impression of poor harvesting and utilization. Guidelines related to perceived harvest size, slash, landings and snags have the greatest potential to enhance visual quality.

Before conducting a timber harvest, discuss your concerns with your forester and incorporate into your stewardship plan those practices that best meet your objectives. For more information on protecting the visual value of your woodlot, see A Guide to Logging Aesthetics: Practical Tips for Loggers, Foresters, and Landowners.

OBJECTIVES. To develop comprehensive strategic and operational planning mechanisms that ensure that forest values will be protected during harvesting. To ensure responsible use of land and forest resources for the maximum benefit of all stakeholders. To develop plans that take account of the socio-economic and environmental impacts on the area.

It means that to be able to express the quality of a defined landscape it is necessary to determine its shared values. Thus the quality objectives are the consequences of the evaluation and assessment of the character of the landscape (LCA) and the starting point for the preparation of landscape directives which have to lead the planning system.

After all, mastering landscape architecture makes an architect capable of creating a complete and well-integrated design project on the inside and outside. So, here is a list of landscape architecture books and references available for free download. Check them out and expand your architectural knowledge.

Landscape Architecture Books 1. Disturbance is a crucial component of diversity, and timber harvest provides a measure of control of where and how disturbance occurs. Given the diversity of Michigan forest types, it is not surprising that a range of forest management and timber harvest systems have been developed that employ inherent ecological characteristics of those forest.

Generally utilized for the final harvest of mature timber, clearcutting is the most cost-effective harvest method and will generate the greatest income.

For some, a downside of clearcutting is the visual impact. quality protection measures and operational feasibili-ty. This is followed by an evaluation of the practices to determine whether they are achieving the desired level of water quality protection.

Feedback from this evaluation process can be used to improve the effec-tiveness of those BMPs that are not achieving water quality objectives. I got an email recently from a retired procurement forester.

This guy had been following the blog for quite some time, and he wanted to let me know about a land value proposition I had never mentioned before.

Mary McMahon Last Modified Date: J A Timber Harvest Plan (THP) is a document which details planned logging operations and the steps that will be taken to minimize environmental impacts of these operations.

In many regions of the world, a timber harvest plan is required before logging can proceed, and these documents are open to public .First Review and Pre-Harvest Inspection Before being accepted for filing or within five days after filing, the plan undergoes “first review” in Santa Rosa to decide if an on-the-ground inspection, known as a “pre-harvest inspection” (PHI), is necessary and to help identify potential problems which should be considered during the review.Changes in Soil Ware Quality Resulting from Three Timber Cutting Methods and Three Levels of Fiber Utilization.
