2017 in Review

Forest Management Plans
Timber harvest

DRPforestry had a busy year in 2017. The two biggest projects were developing and writing Forest Management Plans and timber harvesting, which took up about 55 percent of the total time and contacted 21 clients.



Weed spraying

Two other significant activities were herbicide application for noxious weed control (7 percent and six clients) and timber trespass analysis (12 percent and six clients) .



Timber trespass is one of my favorite projects. When trees are cut inadvertently or stolen, one must determine the timber volume using only the number and size of the stumps. Then the total value must be estimated using log values less the harvesting costs. Sometimes I feel like a detective.
