Just as the effects of harvest on Piedmont soils vary according to equip-ment the amount of logging debris and intensity of harvest so too the effects of site preparation vary according to similar factors Site preparation may disturb only a small percentage of the site

Stump Harvesting for Bioenergy

Contrary to the drastic reductions in the nutrient stocks of the forest floor following intensive stump harvesting reported by Hope (2007) other researchers have found that the effects of site preparation (as opposed to stump removal per se) on soil nutrients to be generally short lived (Schmidt et al 1996 – 15 months Johnson et al 2002 – 15/16 years Simard et al 2003 – 9 years)

Mechanical Site Preparation for Forestry in Mississippi

Site preparation is a general term used to describe silvicultural treatments applied to logging debris vegetation the forest floor or soil to make the site suitable for regeneration Two different categories of site preparation are used in forestry: chemical and mechanical Chemical site preparation involves applying herbicides to control vegetation that could compete with

Harvest

Harvesting is the process of gathering a ripe crop from the fields Reaping is the cutting of grain or pulse for harvest typically using a scythe sickle or reaper On smaller farms with minimal mechanization harvesting is the most labor-intensive activity of the growing season On large mechanized farms harvesting utilizes the most expensive and sophisticated farm machinery such as the

Effects of Stump Harvesting and Site Preparation on

The lack of treatment effects caused by stump harvest and site preparation in one of the stump harvest studies focused attention on the antecedent logging The question of whether the logging was of major importance when compared with the subsequent soil disturbance caused by site preparation was further investigated in the Balsj catchment study

Effect of LIMA Harvesting Technique on Postoperative
