Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198545703, Hardcover)Commercial forests are dwindling and to harvest and replant each tree crop successfully a forester must know his land, the composition of the soil and its strengths and limitations. The first study to consider soil survey for forestry, this book explains how to describe, map and assess land for the forest industry, explaining how to grow and harvest trees, how to plan a soil survey, and how to assess and present the data. Taking a practical approach, the volume includes such useful information as how to locate oneself in a forest, "mark up" aerial photographs, and plan a helicopter traverse, as well as lists of equipment suppliers, practicable rates of progress, traverse spacings and inspection densities--all invaluable for survey planning, but rarely published.
