I get trees stuck up from time to time and would like to pull them down  with a winch or come-along.  I want to change the direction of the pull with a pulley or better with a snatch block.  Beats…Continue

"Jim, If you have a forester managing the logging they should be able to provide guidance on seeding/erosion control.  If not, I would suggest contacting your local Soil and Water Conservation District.  For Michigan you can find the…"

I having a timber harvest.  A lot of new logging roads will be made on  100 acres. I need information about seeding to prevent erosion.  My guess is that some roads will be in heavy or light shade and some will be open.Any insight or information about seed choice and planting techniques  will be appreciated.See More

"Thanks John.  As I wrote previously I am using a swing-side snatchblock which fulfills my needs perfectly.  No need for overkill as you put it.  I am pulling down leaners not logging."

"Jim- Is a swing side snatchblock one that requires manually releasing the cable?  They are generally far less expensive than the self-releasing snatchblocks, since the pulley is supported on both sides when under load. A self-releasing…"

"I bought a swing side snatchbloch on Ebay for $24.  Rated about 10 000 lbs, used with 3/4 rope. I have pulled down three leaners; it worked just as it is supposed to."

"I bought a second self-releasing snatch block a couple of years ago.  It was very similar in design to the Farmi block Peter mentioned, but it cost me about half the price of the Farmi and Norse blocks that I've seen advertised. It…"

Peter Smallidge replied to Jim Martin's discussion terminology
"Hi Jim: Kevin has it right.  A cohort is going to have high similarity of trees of the same age, though perhaps of different species.  They may not be geographically connected.  For example, you might think of the disturbance created…"

Kevin Mathers replied to Jim Martin's discussion terminology
"The distinction may be valuable for foresters or others who are viewing the forest from a technical perspective.  For most landowners the distinction is probably not that important.  Landowners can focus on managing the stands on their…"

Jim Martin replied to Jim Martin's discussion terminology
"Kevin,Thanks for the help with the two terms.So, a cohort could consist of trees of uneven age but with many species, and be on a site with vastly un-uniform quality; the main characteristic is that it developed from a single disturbance. Right? It…"

Kevin Mathers replied to Jim Martin's discussion terminology
"Jim, These terms can be confusing, and complicated depending on what factors you are placing the most value on (silviculture vs. ecology). Stands may or may not be made up of mostly one cohort, depending on the history of the stand.  Below are…"
