Current Research

Water quality and erosion processes are the focus of several current projects.These include: an assessment of alternative management prescriptions in SMZs in the coastal Plain, assessment of the impact of various temporary stream crossings on water quality, and a long-termevaluation of the effect of forest roads in bottomland hardwood stands subjected to flooding.In addition, we are investigating system performance of new harvesting equipment for wet sites and in cut-to-length operations.I also have ongoing projects to evaluate the operator's workstation on grapple skidders and to examine hazards and risk taking in forest work.
