Roadside Grassing--A Post-Logging Practice for Redwood Forests
Abstract:Forest roadbuilding, landings, and skid trails expose a great deal of soil to rainfall in the first few winters after logging, until natural vegetation stabilizes the soil. Studies showed annual rye (Lolium multiflorum) and urea 45-0-0 would provide a suitable ground cover during this period.
