A Guide to Logging Aesthetics: Practical Tips for Loggers, Foresters and Landowners.

Many woodland owners are reluctant to harvest their timber for fear of destroying the natural beauty, recreational values, and wildlife habitat. With 50 color photographs and text, A Guide to Logging Aesthetics: Practical Tips for Loggers, Foresters and Landowners, describes cost-effective and proven practices that minimize the negative impacts during and immediately after the harvest while enhancing the wildlife, recreational, and aesthetic qualities of the woodlot. The guide fills a gap in forest management literature for private woodlot owners as well as foresters and loggers.

The guide also describes programs administered by county Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS) offices that assist with the cost of seeding disturbed land to control soil erosion. Contact information for the state SCS offices, state foresters, extension foresters associated with land grant universities, and ASCS state offices is included in the appendix of the guide for the twenty states in the northeast and north central regions.

A Guide to Logging Aesthetics, NRAES-60, is available for $6 from the Northeast Regional Agricultural Engineering Service, Cooperative Extension, 152 Riley-Robb Hall, Ithaca, NY 14853-5701.
