Harvesting Effects on Soil and Water in the Eastern Hardwood Forest

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

For the eastern United States, there is overwhelming evidence that neither the productivity of forest soil nor the quality of forest water are substantially lessened during or after responsibly managed harvest of wood products. Carelessness, however, damages both resources. The key is forest roads; they cause little adverse effect on soil or water given proper location, drainage, traffic control, and maintenance. The public must better understand that it bears much of the cost for these measures.
