The objectives of my study were: 1 To identify and isolate variables that significantly influence helicopter yarding efficiency. 2 To develop a simulation model that will simulate the response of the helicopter yarding operations to changes in these variables.

I observed a medium lift (Boeing-Vertol Model II) helicopter operation yarding from old growth stands under varying conditions. The helicopter yarding cycle Cited by: 4.

John, B.C. - SeptemberA wetland is a swamp, marsh, or other similar area that supports natural vegetation that is distinct from the adjacent upland areas. More specifically, a wetland is an area where a water table is at, near, or above the surface or where soils are water-saturated for a sufficient length of time that excess water and resulting low oxygen levels are principal determinants of vegetation and soil.

These forests are challenging to map because of their immense height. Whole tree harvest, with disposal of tops at the landing (chipping, burning) is most effective at preventing surface fuel increases in the residual stand, and helicopter yarding, the best system for minimizing immediate soil impacts from harvest, usually causes the highest surface fuel increases because tops from harvested trees are left in the by: Damage to residual trees from cable yarding when partial cutting second-growth stands in coastal British Columbia Article in Canadian Journal of Forest Research 26(8) February This paper focuses on the effects of extensive forest management on soil productivity, its capacity to produce plants.

Forest productivity, the summation of the productivities of the individual landscape elements (stands) that comprise the forest, is the integration of soil productivity, climate, species composition and stocking, and stand by: helicopter yarding is used as a last resort.

AFRC - 3 Allow mechanical harvesting and pre-bunching of processed logs (slopes less than 45%) on ground-based, skyline, and helicopter units. This harvest method will be considered to lower logging costs (Appendix A, Plantation Treatments and Assoc.

Actions, Thin and Harvest Actions, soils section). A SIMSCRIPT II. 5 simulation model of the F1S and F16 pilots assignment process was developed. The simulation tested the effect of changing CONUS TOS from 3 years to 6 years in half year increments.

Abstract. This chapter provides a brief overview of instrumentation and methods for characterizing vegetation structure at the stand level, where a stand is defined as an area of relatively uniform physical environmental conditions, vegetation structure, and plant community composition (Barbour et al.

A realistically dimensioned polystyrene model of a black-tailed deer was constructed and tested in two forest stands and a wind tunnel to determine heat transfer relationships for the boundary layer and coat. Heat transfer from the elliptically cross-sectioned model deer trunk without a coat, in cross flow, was nearly the same as that for a circular cylinder.

Heat transfer from the model in. forests are located in mountainous areas, where forest lands are not readily accessible with ground-based logging equipments, but cable yarding technologies are still undeveloped in this forest area.

Accessibility is the most critical factor influencing feasibility of operations in mountainous terrain (Heinemann ). Growth rates were developed from the "West Cascades – Gifford Pinchot" variant of FVS (Forest Vegetation Simulator) using the LMS (Landscape Management System) interface.

Watershed-average growth rates were developed in the absence of management, after a pre-commercial thin at age ***, and after a commercial thin at age ****.

Created Date: 2/17/ PM. The larch (Larix occidentalis) - Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga taxifolia) stands of the Upper Columbia Basin have been and are being cut over in many ways, and a method for predicting future growth of residual stands is needed for use in management plans.

Several variables are involved: size of trees, period of time after logging, vigor of trees. Note: All the following problems assume an inviscid, incompressible flow. Also, standard sea level density and pressure are kg/m 3 ( slug/ft 3) and × 10 5 N/m 2 ( lb/ft 2), respectively.

Prescribed fire and low thinning were applied to dry forests dominated by ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) in the eastern Washington Cascades.
