Bigleaf maple complex( Book )

This operational summary provides information about vegetation management in the bigleaf maple complex. The dominant species in this complex is bigleaf maple (Acer macrophyllum), with a number of shrubs and ferns as major associates including: salmonberry (Rubus spectabilis), trailing blackberry (Rubus ursinus), blackberry (Rubus leucodermis), sword fern (Polystichum munitum) and bracken fern (Pteridium aquilinum).

Vine maple (Acer circinatum), thimbleberry (Rubus parviflorus), sword fern (Polystichum munitum), and bracken fern (Pteridium aquilinum) can be minor components. Topics covered in this summary include development of the complex and its interaction with crop trees; non-timber values and pre-harvest considerations; and management strategies for current and backlog sites
Cottonwood complex( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This operational summary provides information about vegetation management in the cottonwood complex. Interior versions of this complex are dominated by cottonwood (Populus balsamifera ssp. trichocarpa) and may contain significant components of black twinberry (Lonicera involucrata), red-osier dogwood (Cornus stolonifera), willow (Salix spp.), red elderberry (Sambucus racemosa), thimbleberry (Rubus parviflorus), green alder (Alnus crispa), mountain alder (Alnus rugosa), reedgrass (Calamagrostis canadensis), or drooping wood-reed (Cinna latifolia). The coastal version of the cottonwood complex may contain significant components of red alder (Alnus rubra), salmonberry (Rubus spectabilis), red-osier dogwood, devil's club (Oplopanax horridus), red elderberry, or thimbleberry. Other shrubby and herbaceous species that may occur with varying abundance are stink currant (Ribes bracteosum), vine maple (Acer circinatum), and sword fern (Polystichum munitum). Topics covered in this summary include development of the complex and its interaction with crop trees; non-timber values and pre-harvest considerations; and management strategies for current and backlog sites
Fern complex( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This operational summary provides information about vegetation management in the fern complex. The fern complex occurs in two main forms, one characterized by bracken fern (Pteridium aquilinum) and the other characterized by lady fern (Athyrium filix-femina). The fern complex characterized by bracken is comprised almost entirely of this species alone. Once a bracken fern complex develops, few other species can establish or survive in this association. Complexes characterized by lady fern also include bracken and spiny wood fern. Minor components are fireweed, red raspberry, devil's club, red elderberry, and thimbleberry. Topics covered in this summary include development of the complex and its interaction with crop trees; non-timber values and pre-harvest considerations; and management strategies for current and backlog sites
Manual, motor-manual and mechanical brushing tools for conifer release by Eileen M. Forestell Harvey( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brushing is defined as the removal of undesirable herbaceous and woody vegetation by manual or mechanical means. Manual, motor-manual, and mechanical brushing are largely the only tools available in parts of Canada where policy has minimized the use of herbicide release in forestry. This note describes the characteristics of brushing tools including shears, brush axes and hooks, machetes, brush saws, chain saws, and mechanical brushing tools (either as attachments to other equipment or as integral machines). Response of various species of vegetation to brushing is then reviewed

Broom and gorse in British Columbia : a forestry perspective problem analysis by British Columbia( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Broom, an erect deciduous shrub, and gorse, a similar evergreen shrub with spines, were introduced to British Columbia many years ago and have now spread to become competitors with crop trees on some forest sites. This report investigates the presence of the two shrubs as competing species, their impact on crop trees and other non-forest resources and their control. The investigation consisted of a literature review of foreign studies (especially New Zealand) and telephone interviews of B.C. foresters, biologists and other experts in the field. Experience from elsewhere was compared to the perceptions and experiences of practitioners in B.C
