Using a Chainsaw to Control Brush
Abstract:When chainsaws were used to control brush on small tracts in the Siskiyou Mountains of Oregon, 56 percent of suppressed conifer seedlings were released but about one-third of these were damaged from saws, piled slash, or trampling by workers. Worker production was one-fifth that obtained for precommercial thinning, a similar operation. The slash created an extreme fire hazard.
