Woodland Winter Feeding of Cattle: Water Quality Best Management Practices
5/5/2011 (new)

 UK Authors: Steve Higgins, Jeff Stringer,
 Departments: Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering, Forestry and Natural Resources
 Series: Interdepartmental (ID series)
 Tags:

Cattle maintain their body temperature in winter by burning more calories, which requires them to consume more feed. Livestock producers use wooded areas to provide protection for cattle from wind and low temperatures. That protection enables the cattle to conserve energy and eat less. Using wooded areas for winter feeding makes practical sense, but producers need to consider several environmental issues when planning for it.

Site Preparation for Natural Regeneration of Hardwoods
4/7/2011 (new)

 UK Authors: Jeff Stringer
 Departments: Forestry and Natural Resources
 Series: Forestry (FOR series)
 Tags:

One aspect of forest sustainability is regenerating the stand to desired species once the stand is harvested. Usually the species present in the overstory are more desirable than those in the understory and midstory. If management is not performed to adjust the regenerating species composition prior to the harvest, these understory and midstory species likely will be the composition of the future stand.

Uneven-aged Management in Mixed Species, Southern Hardwoods: Is it Feasible and Sustainable?
4/7/2011 (new)

 UK Authors: Jeff Stringer
 Departments: Forestry and Natural Resources
 Series: Forestry (FOR series)
 Tags:

For uneven-age stands to develop, both young and old trees need to be developing in the same stand, where younger trees are naturally smaller in diameter than older trees. Thus, guidelines and graphs used by foresters to help establish uneven-age stands use diameter as a surrogate for age and assume that age and diameter are related.

Forest Water Quality Plan: Preparing an Agriculture Water Quality Plan for Your Woodlands
5/18/2010 (reprinted)

 UK Authors: Jeff Stringer
 Departments: Forestry and Natural Resources
 Series: Forestry (FOR series)
 Tags:

All parties involved in woodland operations are responsible for water quality protection. One of the most effective methods of protecting water quality during forestry operations is to use BMPs. BMPs are guidelines and techniques that, when used properly, can help reduce impact to our waters. They do this by decreasing erosion and the creation of muddy water, keeping chemicals and fluids out of streams, and limiting changes in the woods next to streams.

Technical Guide to Crop Tree Release In Hardwood Forests
1/6/2009 (new)

 UK Authors: Jeff Stringer
 Departments: Forestry and Natural Resources
 Series: Forestry (FOR series)
 Tags:

Crop tree release (CTR) is a widely applicable silvicultural technique used to enhance the performance of individual trees. It offers flexibility in that it can be applied on small or large properties, and with certain modifications, it can be applied as a precommercial or commercial operation. By favoring the development of selected crop trees within a hardwood stand, the landowner can meet a variety of area-wide management objectives such as wildlife habitat, recreation, timber value, aesthetic beauty and species diversity. CTR can be applied at various stages of development, including sapling, pole and sawtimber stands, depending on the specific opportunities to improve stand conditions. In some cases, it may be advisable to apply CTR more than once during the rotation. As forest managers gain experience with CTR, many come to realize that it is a versatile silvicultural technique that can be effective in many situations.
