Cover of Western Forester June/July/August 2012 issue

Roads are an essential tool of managing forests. Foresters need them to access stands to inspect forest health or conduct timber sales. Wildland firefighters need roads to reach areas where fires are burning or where prescribed burns may be conducted. And the general public uses roads for recreation purposes. In this issue, authors explore the theme of “Forest Roads” as it relates to management, sediment considerations, and costs.
