Minimizing the adverse impacts of timber harvest in the northern Rocky Mountains

Documents and Media Posted on: October 17, 2018
A new model, NUTROSS, has been developed to evaluate nutrient losses from harvest of aboveground biomass of trees in the northern Rocky Mountains. The model is useful in low-precipitation forest zones with little or no solution losses to streams. It is based on the assumption that materials not removed in harvest will be available to supply nutrients through mineralization to grow the same ecosystem components in the next rotation.Document Type: Other Documents

Logging utilization in Montana, 2011-2016

Publications Posted on: July 19, 2018
A study of commercial timber-harvesting activities in Montana was conducted during 2011 to 2016 to estimate growing-stock removals, characterize current tree utilization and logging operations, and assist with estimating the amount of woody biomass left onsite after harvesting. Sample logging sites were selected within major geographic regions proportional to 5-year timber harvest volumes.

Chapter 12: Forest fuels and predicted fire behavior in the first 5 years after a bark beetle outbreak with and without timber harvest (Project INT-EM-F-11-04)

Publications Posted on: January 12, 2017
Unprecedented levels of tree mortality from native bark beetle species have occurred in a variety of forest types in Western United States and Canada in recent decades in response to beetle-favorable forest and climatic conditions (Bentz 2009, Meddens and others 2012).

Multivariate landscape trajectory analysis: An example using simulation modeling of American marten habitat change under four timber harvest scenarios

Publications Posted on: October 03, 2016
Integrating temporal variabilily into spatial analyses is one of the abiding challenges in landscape ecology. In this chapter we use landscape trajectory analysis to assess changes in landscape patterns over time. Landscape trajectory analysis is an approach to quantify changes in landscape structure over time.
