Object & Deliverables
The primary objective of this project was the operational assessment of the “Patchworks” Model to rationalize clearcut and partial cut harvest activities in the L1 Forest Management Unit.
Specific objectives included provision of estimated production possibilities that could be achieved from a strategy of conifer roundwood enhancement using understory protection harvest; and production of spatially explicit harvest allocations identifying the exact locations where the proposed treatments should be implemented.
Activities associated with this project occurred over the calendar years 2001 and 2002.
Study results are contained in two separate reports entitled “Patchworks Analysis of the L1 Management Unit” authored by Tom Moore October 2001; and “Patchworks Analysis of the L1 Management Unit – Phase II” prepared by Tom Moore.
