Finishing BC wood species for interior applications by Kevin Groves( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introductory sections of this report review the volumes of wood available in British Columbia and the characteristics of wood that are important to consider for finishing purposes. It then describes & presents results of tests which examined the finishing properties of British Columbia wood species and compared them to those of a number of competitive wood species from around the world. The procedures followed were standard tests for finish adherence which determined the adhesion of a number of commonly used coatings for interior & exterior applications. A range of furniture-type finishes (stains, sealers, and top coats) were applied to subjectively evaluate the appearance attributes of each species. The information in the report can be used to raise awareness of the potential of British Columbia wood species for furniture & other interior applications

Partial-cutting safety handbook by British Columbia( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Partial cutting, a silvicultural system in which some trees are left standing after logging, leaves workers exposed to hazards & risks associated with felling & yarding under a partial canopy or near reserves. This handbook presents safety guidelines for planning & carrying out partial-cutting silvicultural systems. Starting with general considerations given to partial cutting in the forest development plan, the handbook introduces progressively more detailed planning concepts for partial cutting, from initial layout & design, through to the development of silviculture prescriptions. Finally, it outlines safe operating procedures and provides checklists for conducting actual harvest operations. The procedures cover felling, tree climbing, and cable-, helicopter-, ground-based, and horse-logging methods. The appendix contains information on controlling windthrow

Preventing non-crop vegetation problems( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the forests of British Columbia, brush, herbs and grasses compete with crop tree seedlings for light, nutrients, moisture and space. Fastgrowing vegetation can suppress the growth and reduce the rate of survival of young seedlings. It is sometimes necessary to control the growth of surrounding vegetation until seedlings reach free growing. Techniques used to manage an existing vegetation problem can include prescribed fire, mulches, manual cutting, chemical, mechanical and biological methods. Prevention is the preferred vegetation management option. The key to prevention is good planning. Preventative planning, prior to harvest, can reduce the impact of competing vegetation and increase the survival and early growth of crop trees. The choice of harvesting technique, site preparation method, and seedling stock type can each affect the future vegetation management requirements of a forest site. This brochure contains information on pre-harvest stage assessment, harvest, site preparation, site regeneration, follow-up measures and evalution
