Some Changes in Soil-protective Properties of Pre-Carpathian Forests Influenced by Selective and Continuous Felling

V.S. Olijnyk, O.M. Tkachuk


The number of seedlings indicators before and after the selective and continuous felling realization, damage and destruction are shown. The square and the depth of soil stripping at logging operations are characterized. The volumes of forest exploitation caused by soil erosion, depending on the degree of damage, especially in the tractor trail network are highlighted. The changes in the soil permeability under the influence of timber wood are analysed. The silvicultural effectiveness of different ways of cutting is reviewed. The classification of the log likelihood areas concerning water runoff and erosion is proposed.
