Prescribed burning impacts on some coastal British Columbia ecosystems( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prescribed burning is widely used as a forest management tool. This paper quantifies the impacts of fires of different severity on woody debris and soil organic horizons. Three low-severity spring burns, two high-severity fall burns and two unburned controls were established on three sites near Port Alberni, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Most of the low-severity spring burn area was accidentally reburned during an adjacent high-severity fall burn, resulting in a very high-severity burn

Prescribed burning impacts on some coastal British Columbia ecosystems( )

"Prescribed burning is widely used as a forest management tool; however, its long-term impacts on site productivity must be better understood to meet planned burn objectives. MacMillan Bloedel (now Western Forest Products Inc.) and the Canadian Forest Service began a study of the effects of prescribed burning on fuel consumption, tree growth and site nutrition in 1985. This paper quantifies the impacts of fires of different severity on woody debris and soil organic horizons.‍?Three low-severity spring burns, two high-severity fall burns and two unburned controls were established on three sites near Port Alberni, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Most of the low-severity spring burn area was accidentally reburned during an adjacent high-severity fall burn, resulting in a very high-severity burn. ‍?The major differences in impacts between spring and fall burns were greater consumption of forest floor and increased mineral soil exposure on fall burns. The reburned area had forest floor consumption and mineral soil exposure similar to those in the adjacent fall burn, but also exhibited greater large woody fuel consumption. Total slash consumption significantly increased with increasing fire severity, while consumption of forest floor, slash plus forest floor, depth of burn, and mineral soil exposure were all significantly greater on fall burns compared to those in spring burns."
Forest site rehabilitation for coastal British Columbia (interim methods) by W. J Beese( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Watershed Restoration Program was initiated to restore the productive capacity of fisheries, forest, and water resources that have been adversely impacted by past forest harvest practices. This handbook describes the general types of detrimental soil disturbance that can occur in forestry operations, then describes rehabilitation techniques for roads, landings, gravel and rock pits, skid trails, backspar trails, hoe-forwarding trails, fireguards, burned slash piles, and landslides. For each of the features, rehabilitation strategies are suggested to restore natural drainage patterns and control surface erosion; restore soil properties including decompaction, re-sloping, and replacing topsoil; and revegetate with herbs, shrubs, and trees to control erosion, improve soil nutrition, and restore a productive forest
Variable retention windthrow monitoring project, 2001-2002 : progress report by Terrence P Rollerson( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Weyerhaeuser, BC Coastal Group has adopted the variable retention (VR) approach to harvesting and silviculture for most of the company's public and private forestland. Most of the variable retention blocks use the retention silvicultural system, leaving trees as groups or as dispersed individual trees or small clusters of a few trees. Modified shelterwood and selection systems with long-term reserves are also used. Variable retention will result in an increase in the total length of forest edge associated with forest openings, as well as greater numbers of dispersed trees. Because of these changes, there may be a limited increase in the frequency and extent of windthrow associated with forest harvesting. It is therefore important to document the extent of windthrow associated with VR harvesting and to determine the best strategies to minimize or manage for windthrow. In order to document the extent of windthrow and to improve windthrow management, it is necessary to monitor the character and location of windthrow over time and to document the management and environmental factors associated with windthrow. This pilot project was carried out in Weyerhaeuser's West Island Timberlands unit (WI) on southwestern Vancouver Island and the Queen Charlotte Timberlands unit (QCI)
