About once every hundred years or so a big one comes. The pit and mound topography you see in the forest is old blowdowns rotted away. Check out Tom Wessels "Reading the Forested Landscape-A Natural History of New England". An excellent book. Abstract. The effects of whole-tree clear-cutting on soil processes and streamwater chemistry were examined in a northern hardwood forest at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, New Hampshire.

Soil processes were examined by monitoring soil solution chemistry collected using zero-tension lysimeters from the Oa, Cited by: His book, Changes in the Land, is an environmental history of colonial New England. It documents the clash of two cultures that could not have been more different, the Indians and the settlers.

Year: Silviculturalists have been concerned over nutrient losses from clearcutting and, more recently, whole-tree harvesting in New England since the late s. This book simply but thoroughly describes the latest in new woody landscape plant selection and maintenance practices, There is enough scientific and technical background for training Urban Foresters and Arborists in the practice of : Thoughtco Editors.

following mechanical whole-tree clearcutting. They also predicted that calcium uptake by 3 year-old regeneration would exceed the extractable calcium in the soils of the site.

They studied the calcium dynamics of 3 forest types in New England and concluded that calcium is potentially a limiting plant nutrient in the forests of Connecticut.

Data on. Clear-cutting is a method of harvesting and regenerating trees in which all trees are cleared from a site and a new, even-age stand of timber is grown. Clear-cutting is only one of several methods of timber management and harvest in both private and public forests.

Whole-tree clearcutting in New England: Manager's guide to impacts on soils, streams, and regeneration. Forest Service general technical report (Final). Intensively harvested forests in New England have shifted partially from conventional stem-only clearcutting using chainsaws and skidders to whole-tree clearcutting using harvesting machines.

We have studied the impacts of whole- tree clearcutting on soil, water, and revegetation in spruce-fir, northern hardwood, and central hardwood forest by: The effects of whole- tree clearcutting on soil processes at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, New Hampshire, USA.

Plant and Soil The results of this study showed that whole-tree clearcutting of a northern mixed hardwood and spruce-fir forest created a severe ecosystem disturbance leading to increased acidification of the soil solution and streamwaters.

CONCLUSION In New England, intensive harvesting in the form of whole-tree clearcutting results in important losses of plant nutrients such as Ca, K, and N. Shortages of plant-available nutrients might develop in regenerating stands, particularly in the years immediately after harvest when leaching losses and plant uptake are by: Shelterwood cutting: Removal of mature, marketable trees in an area in a series of partial cuttings to allow regeneration of a new stand under the partial shade of older trees, which are later removed.

Typically, this is done by making two or three cuts over a decade. Compare clear-cutting, seed-tree cutting, selective cutting, strip cutting.

The objective of this research was to evaluate the impacts of increasing product removal on biomass and nutrient content of a central hardwood forest ecosystem.

Commercial thinning, currently the most common harvesting practice in southern New England, was compared with whole-tree clearcutting or maximum aboveground utilization.

REVEGETATION AFTER WI{OLE-TREE CLEARCUTTING OF HARDWOODS IN CONNECTICUT_/ C. Wayne Martin, Louise M. Tritton, and James W. Hornbeck _/ AbstractA 6-ha watershed in the hardwood forest of Connecticut was whole-tree harvested.

Prior to cutting, the density of trees and shrubs was 1, stems ha l, and the above-ground living biomass. Their book, New England Wildlife: Management of Forested Habitats, establishes that stands in the seedling and sapling stage attract the most wildlife species; once a stand gets beyond pole timber, it becomes less useful to many birds and mammals, even certain reptiles and amphibians.

A diversity of forest age classes, then, should be the goal. Charles Fergus has written about nature and the outdoors for many magazines and newspapers, including Audubon, Country Journal, Science, and the New York Times.

Published studies have raised the possibility of soil nutrient depletion and losses of forest productivity due to accelerated soil leaching and the removal of nutrients in the harvested trees.

To determine how progressive strip cutting affects nutrient and hydrological cycling and stand regeneration relative to clearcutting.

Disturbances can leave long-term imprints or legacies that persist for decades in ecosystems (Goodale and Aber,Foster et al., ).These may be detected in the form of altered landscape structure (Mladenoff et al.,Foster et al., ), vegetation (Motzkin and Foster, ) and soil properties (Compton et al.,Lynham et al.,Cited by:   Since planting new trees does get one credits, Kyoto actually created a rationale for clear-cutting old growth.
