Economic benefits of managing forestry and tourism at Nimmo Bay : a public perception study and economic analysis by British Columbia( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was undertaken to address the challenge of optimizing the overall benefits of forest landscapes to both the forestry & tourism industries in British Columbia. Nimmo Bay Lodge was chosen for the study because it had a defined viewshed with merchantable wood, planned timber harvesting activities in the viewshed, and clients willing to be surveyed. A visual perception survey was administered to 96 lodge patrons to determine visitor response to various visual quality scenes & silvicultural systems such as partial retention and clear-cutting. The survey sought to determine the proportion of clients who would return to the lodge. Next, the viewshed for the lodge was defined to establish a land base for benefit analysis purposes, and an annual timber flow was derived for the area. The benefit analysis looked at several scenarios ranging from no harvesting to maximum harvest in four economic areas: resource value, business revenue, government revenue, and employment & income.

Summary of forest health conditions in British Columbia( )

in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since 1999, the B.C. Ministry of Forests has surveyed the majority of the forested land in the province using the classic sketch mapping technique known as the the overview survey method. The purpose of the survey is to record and report the general trends in disturbance patterns across the provincial forested land base (including provincial parks, private land, and Tree Farm Licences but not Federal parks). The survey has been a key source of data documenting the development of the current mountain pine beetle outbreak in the interior of B.C. Data from the BC MOF survey is also comparable to data collected from 1914 to 1995 by the Canadian Forest Service's former Forest Insect and Disease Survey Unit (FIDS) and to US Forest Service, Forest Health monitoring surveys."--Forest Practices Branch webpage as viewed September 30, 2009: http://www.for.gov.bc.ca/hfp/health/overview/overview.htm

Applying best stubble heights on rangeland by Doug Fraser( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It discusses the importance of stubble height to the grazing animal & to the forage plant, and the need for a proper stubble height to maintain soils, watershed function, and wildlife cover. Finally, it lists some brief rules to determine how close to the ground some common forage species can be grazed, and makes recommendations regarding the use of stubble height criteria in grazing management
Using range readiness criteria by Doug A Fraser( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Range readiness refers to the state of range plant growth at which grazing may begin without damage to soil or vegetation. This brochure discusses the concept of range readiness and the use of criteria to indicate appropriate grazing times. It explains the importance of range readiness and reviews factors affecting readiness, including plant phenology & soil condition. It then discusses indicators of range readiness and provides guidance regarding the use of leaf development in grasses as an indicator. Finally, it makes recommendations for determining range readiness
