The Impact of Logging on Wildlife: A Study in Northeastern Pennsylvania
Abstract:Seeing and conserving wildlife are among the most important management objectives for nonindustrial private landowners in the eastern United States. Landowners want profitable timber harvests but also want to know how harvesting will affect their wildlife. The study examined associations between stand characteristics and wildlife abundance on 40 stands receiving different logging intensities in northeastern Pennsylvania and found that landowners have some choices when harvesting their stands for retaining or attracting different types of wildlife.
