"Saw Page"

A recent Project completed in Springfield, Oregon (7/09/06)

Cherry Trees Base was rotten and unstable and removed to protect Structure.

Stump was removed 4" below mineral soil to allow Sod to generate growth.

Nearly 80% of low elevation stands in coastal Pacific Northwest (USA) forests are second-growth stands or plantations dominated by Douglas-fir, western hemlock, and (less frequently) red alder. The stands may be either pure single species stands or mixtures of these species and others (e.g., western redcedar, white pine, and grand fir). Historically, silvicultural systems were developed to maximize the wood production of one or a few species. In the coastal PNW clearcutting was the favored silvicultural system for the establishment of Douglas-fir because Douglas-fir grows fastest in a high light environment and has light, wind-dispersed seeds.


Insects, disease and parasites are more problematic today because of fire suppression. Fire helps maintain tree spacing, which is necessary for a healthy forest. A dense stand of trees must compete for light, nutrients, and space and becomes weaker with time.



Even if the project is small (above) or a much bigger tasks (below) Defensible Perimeters has the staff, skills, and qualifications to accomplish these projected goals. Feel free to call or Email with any related questions.
