Scenic Management Impact on Other Forest Activities
Abstract:Increased "scenic production" has an impact on other forest management goals. This effect was studied by applying Litton's (3) scenic classification to a 16-mile strip of highway on the Sierra National Forest, California. Management and use restrictions were prescribed for each category. The precise costs of making changes as a result of this management scheme cannot yet be determined, but some useful estimates are possible.
