Snow avalanche in recently harvested areas can damage new forest plantations, destroy down-slope resources, and endanger public safety. This Land Management Handbook reviews snow avalanche science as it applies to forestry. It presents risk assessment methods for use in forestry planning, outlines harvest designs, and describes silviculture strategies to reduce the risk of snow avalanche. Approaches for managing avalanche risks to forest workers are also summarized. With an extensive bibliography and list of Internet resources, this publication will be a valuable reference for natural resource managers, recreation planners, land developers, and anyone who manages work sites in winter.
