Sierra Nevada Logging Examples
Back in 2012, I worked my last season with the Forest Service, on the Amador Ranger District of the Eldorado National Forest. In particular, I led the crew in marking the cut trees in this overcrowded unit.
The above picture shows the partially logged unit, as well as the sizes of logs thinned.
This part of the same unit shows a finished portion, and two other log landings.
Here is a link to the larger view. http://bit.ly/2EIfbL7
There are also other completed cutting units in the area, which I worked in. Most of those were also cut in 2018, six years after they were marked. The existing plantations were cut back in the 80’s. At least one new goshawk nest was found, and the cutting unit was dropped.
