SA sawmills back to work to meet timber shortages

A decision to allow the resumption of structural timber production in the state’s sawmills will let the industry play catch up for a week in a bid to reduce shortages threatening to derail the residential building boom. Source: InDaily The building industry has been forced to down tools during South Australia’s seven-day coronavirus lockdown, which initially prevented sawmills from operating. ...

The wrapper model for multiobjective forest monitoring systems

<p>Large multiobjective forest monitoring efforts such as the USDA���s Forest Inventory and Analysis Program and other National Forest Inventory (NFI) systems are usually described to the public in terms of the relationship of their sample designs to the land base of interest. Sometimes the third dimension of time is included in the description of the sample design. Additionally, there...

Woody material structural degradation through decomposition on the forest floor

Dead woody material (DWM) plays numerous important roles in forest ecosystems; however, through the process of decomposition, it undergoes structural and chemical changes that progressively alter its function in these roles. Much remains unknown about how DWM mechanical strength and structural integrity change through decomposition in natural forest settings. We assessed changes in wood strength (...

Contemporary status, distribution, and trends of mixedwoods in the northern United States

As interest in managing and maintaining mixedwood forests in the northern United States (US) grows, so does the importance of understanding their abundance and distribution. We analyzed Forest Inventory and Analysis data for insights into mixedwood forests spanning 24 northern US states from Maine south to Maryland and westward to Kansas and North Dakota. Mixedwoods, i.e., forests with both hardwo...

Assessing streamflow sensitivity of forested headwater catchments to disturbance and climate change in the central Appalachian Mountains region, USA

Forest headwater catchments are critical sources of water, but climate change and disturbance may threaten their ability to produce reliable and abundant water supplies. Quantifying how climate change and forest disturbances individually and interactively alter streamflow provides important insights into the stability and availability of water derived from headwater catchments that are particularl...

Species mixture effects and climate influence growth, recruitment and mortality in Interior West USA Populus tremuloides ���conifer communities

<p>1. Tree-species mixture effects (e.g. complementarity and facilitation) have been found to increase individual-tree productivity, lessen mortality and improve recruitment in forests worldwide. By promoting more efficient and complete resource use, mixture effects may also lessen individual-tree-level water stress, thus improving drought resistance. We investigated the influence of mixture...

ForestTECH modified to suit COVID environment

Amid all the uncertainty of events in the COVID-19 environment, the Forest Industry Engineering Association’s ForestTECH 2021 in November is on November 23-24. However, the format for the annual technology series run in both Australia and New Zealand has been modified. Source: Timberbiz The new format is going to enable planning with some degree of certainty for ForestTECH 2021 delegates, presen...

Modeling land use change and forest carbon stock changes in temperate forests in the United States

Abstract Background Forests provide the largest terrestrial sink of carbon (C). However, these C stocks are threatened by forest land conversion. Land use change has global impacts and is a critical component when studying C fluxes, but it is not always fully considered in C accounting despite being a major contributor to emissions. ...

Spatially explicit assessment of forest road suitability for timber extraction and hauling in Switzerland

Abstract Efficient forest management, and wood production in particular, requires a forest road network of appropriate density and bearing capacity. The road network affects the choice of a suitable extraction method and the length of the transport route from the forest, while the road standard defines the truck type that can be used. We evaluate the forest road...
