Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Economic evaluations of six forest practices designed to enhance water quality from 18 timber harvesting operations in the midwest were carried out. Net revenue reductions ranged from 1.2% with redesign of landing and skid trail locations to 26.4% with buffer strip requirements. Nine operations were profitable with application of all six practices.-from Authors
