Presentation Topic

Roads, Bridges and Stream Crossings

Presentation Description

Forest roads and water crossings appropriate to Eastern Oregon (or Eastside forests in the PNW in general). There are often significant issues in Eastside forests with access to harvest operations with both seasonal and permanent roads (e.g. aging or restrictive bridges, low volume harvest removals, use of temporary bridges, low water crossings etc.). This presentation will provide the audience with options for low-cost and/or low-impact road and crossing options.
