Description

This review summarizes the available literature relevant to British Columbia concerning the influences of harvesting and post-harvest practices upon the forest environment and resources, and points out significant gaps in knowledge where research would be useful. This will aid the forest manager in decision making concerning management practices, and will direct the forest scientist to specific problems which have not been satisfactorily resolved.
