Soil protection with logging residues during mechanised harvesting of native forests in Tasmania: a preliminary study
In Tasmania, Australia, mechanised forest harvesting operations often use 'cording' to limit soil disturbance. This means logs are laid across the snig tracks, perpendicular to the flow of traffic, providing a rigid barrier between the machinery and the ground surface. At the conclusion of harvesting, the cording material is lifted using an excavator and burnt on site. This latter procedure enhances soil nutrition through the 'ash-bed' effect, whilst increasing the area of seedbed available for...[Show more]
