This handbook is is a comprehensive guide to building and maintaining cost-effective, environmentally acceptable logging roads. It is aimed specifically at nonindustrial private woodland owners in western Oregon and Washington, but it draws on basic forest road engineering principles and practices applicable in other forestry settings. The text is written, as much as possible, in nontechnical terminology for those forest landowners who may have little or no road engineering knowledge. Two types of forest roads, ditched and outsloped roads, are addressed in detail. The construction and maintenance of all-weather and dry-season roads is presented. Information is provided to assist the landowner in writing successful forest road construction, reconstruction, and maintenance contracts.
