About this book

This book covers forest mensuration, but also expands the concept to meet the broader requirements of measuring non-timber, landscape values such as soils, wildlife habitat and hydrology. It also incorporates modern methods of handling forestry data based on GIS (Geographical Information Systems) technology. Contemporary state and federal regulations and the public alike demand that ecological resources be given appropriate weight in forestry management decisions.
