Abstract
  • The focus of this study centers around the economic, technical, and environmental effects analysis of seven helicopter timber sales on four different national forests in Oregon and Washington. This paper is a constructive critique of these seven sales based on the author's personal observations and data collected from planning documents, field visits, and interviews with forty one resource specialists who were actively involved in the planning and effects analysis of these seven timber sales. Additionally, the study examines the effectiveness of the Forest Servic&s' timber sale planning process and points out there are human factors (such as politics, public involvement, and organization) as well as scientific reasons for many forest management decisions. This paper includes a review of published critiques of planning legislation and other aspects of Forest Service planning processes.
