Forests and wind: management to minimise damage

Research Report (incl. Bulletins and Technical Papers)
Barry A Gardiner
1995
The windthrow hazard classification has been widely used to guide forest managers on the selection of strategies to predict and minimise wind damage to forests. The principles of wind damage are described in sections covering wind, soils, mechanics, root anchorage, adaptive growth, interactions and risk. This comprehensive review will guide management to adopt measures that will help to reduce serious damage and windthrow occurrences.
