WHEN THE HARVEST ENDS, THE RECLAMATION BEGINS .....BEFORE

Log landing before reclamation begins.
     Proper reclamation once the harvest is complete increases the longterm value of the property. Things look pretty rough right now.
Main skid trail
     This is the main skid trail into the landing and it has seen a lot of wear and tear.

.....AND AFTER


     These pictures show the same areas above after being reclaimed. Now, let's take a look at the reclamation process

     Successful reclamation takes time and effort to get these kind of results.

RECLAIMING THE LANDING AREA


     The landing, where the logs are worked up and loaded out, receives the most wear and tear during the harvest. Materials not suited for sale, called "chunks", are hauled away for firewood.

     The dozer levels the area and makes sure water will drain off.

RECLAIMING SKID TRAILS


     Trails correctly "Put to Bed" will not erode and provide years of recreational enjoyment until the next harvest.

     The trails are leveled and the outside berm is removed to let water run off.

     Water bars and broad based dips are installed along the trail to help minimize erosion during rain storms.

SEEDING, FERTILIZING, MULCHING


     Once the landing and trails are smoothed up and properly drained, it is time to apply the wildlife seed mixture.

     A little fertilizer and hay mulch give the seed a good start.

........ ALL DONE .......


     The haul roads are smoothed up and some fresh stone is applied where needed to bring the road back to original (or better) condition.

     With the reclamation completed,we pull the gate too and head off to our next timber harvest.

*******ONE YEAR LATER*******




     Everyone benifits from a job well done....the landowner, logger, forester and the resident wildlife.
