A recent Project completed in Springfield, Oregon (7/09/06)
Cherry Trees Base was rotten and unstable and removed to protect
Stump was removed 4" below mineral soil to allow Sod to generate
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,
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.
