Sustaining Minnesota Forest Resources: Voluntary Site-Level Forest Management Guidelines for Landowners, Loggers and Resource Managers
The goal of these guidelines is to maintain the productive capacity of forest soils in Minnesota. A decrease in soil productivity could affect the level of timber harvesting the forest can sustain, as well as other forest values, such as wildlife habitat and biodiversity. Identifying and reducing impacts to this resource should be an essential part of any strategy to achieve sustainable forest management.
