    (forestry) Coarse, fine woody debris generated during logging operations or through wind, snow, etc. Slash generated during logging operations may increase fire hazard. (fashion) An opening in an item of clothing to show skin or a contrasting fabric underneath. Allow fresh logging debris to cure first and to dry after rain. Then "shake' the debris while piling to remove as much soil as possible. If material is piled while green or wet the centers of the piles take an exceedingly long time to dry. Piles that contain little soil and are constructed to allow some air movement will result in a burn that.

    Slash (used as a noun) is the accumulation of limbs, leaves, pine needles and miscellaneous fuel left by natural debris and forest management activities, such as thinning, pruning, and timber harvesting. Slash piles are created by gathering these materials into manageable, isolated piles that can later be . Book Description. Nick Raeside worked at many jobs in the logging business but the one that he specialized in was starting fires—small, (hopefully) controlled fires that were approved by the Forest Service—indeed, required by them—as a means of cleaning up logging slash or debris-laden sites left after the merchantable timber had been removed.

      Number of scientific papers comparing with/without logging residue extraction (slash = only slash; stump = only stumps or slash and stumps). In Northern Europe, five insect pest species are potentially affected by logging residue extraction: the pine weevil (Hylobius abietis) and four bark beetles (Schroeder, ). Get this from a library! Relations of native and exotic species 5 years after clearcutting with and without herbicide and logging debris treatments. [David Peter; Timothy B Harrington; Pacific Northwest Research Station (Portland, Or.),] -- To increase timber production and manage other forest resource values, some land managers have undertaken logging debris and vegetation control treatments.

I examined the effects of slash on rates of deer browsing on sugar maple seedlings in a forest of northern Wisconsin and measured deer foraging behavior using giving-up density and.

Pre-piling also promotes drying of the debris and reduces the slash pile length and the total surface area occupied by the debris.

Both pre-piling operations were similar, although the skidder-loader used on the Nicholson operation was more productive; m' PMH-' compared to m' PMH-' on the Erjo operation (m3 of bulk piled debris). describe downed woody debris such as logging slash has made it difficult to evaluate and communicate debris problems.

For operations that get biomass straight from the forest, the first step in the supply chain is deciding how to collect and transport the leftover slash from logging or thinning. Efficient slash handling can be difficult because the material varies in shape and size and lacks density.

In an effort to make slash recovery cost effective while maintaining a clean, high-quality product, three.
