Wild Logging: A Guide to Environmentally and Economically Sustainable Forestryby Bryan Foster
Synopses & Reviews
Wild Logging covers the rudiments of forest management: inventorying your forest and establishing management goals; developing appropriate timber-harvesting methods and hiring a logger to implement them; and managing the forest estate for the future. In engaging interviews, owners of western forestland share their experiences of which practices work and which don't. Technical sidebars cover basics such as how to develop a management plan, protect your property from wildfire, write a timber harvest contract, and reduce forest taxes. An appendix lists sources of public and private assistance to help woodlot owners manage a beautiful, productive, and healthy forest. Includes 32 black-and-white photographs, 21 black-and-white drawings and diagrams, glossary, bibliography, and index.

The author, who grew up in Montana and has done graduate work in forestry, interviewed land-owners and loggers in Montana and Oregon to assemble their advice and experience regarding methods for inventorying forestland, determining a sustainable harvesting volume, and choosing a logger, among other topics. B&w photographs support the text.
