If tree felling occurs around archaeological sites in these plantations, this can increase the exposure and risk of windthrow to the remaining trees. Thus, forest felling plans must take this risk into account. Windthrow .

Endemic windthrow is the uprooting of trees in forests during normal winter storms File Size: KB. Windthrow affects plantations at nearly all stages, from the later establishment stage through to the pole stage and mature high forest. YOUNG STANDS Some species which have rapid early growth such as lodgepole pine, Douglas fir, larches, ash and sycamore.

winds (windthrow) is one of the most serious hazards in forestry in Ireland. Windthrow can happen before trees reach commercial maturity and this is a major constraint to profitable forestry.

During the period to an average of 85, cubic metres of timber were windthrown File Size: 1MB. Flexibility in forest management reflects both the relative rigidity of intervention requirements and the potential range of development pathways for a stand.

Yet during each rotation, cumulative windthrow causes substantial losses on most forest ownerships, ranking with pests and fire as a major disruption to orderly sustained-yield harvest.

Windthrow is greatest on sites with poorly drained soils (Kennedy, ), in over-dense stands (Faber and Sissingh, ), or where winds Cited by: 3. Written by C S Kilpatrick, this book covers 75 years of State forestry operations in Northern Ireland. It is not only a history of forest development and progress but also a record of the people who contributed to the Northern Ireland Forest Service operations over the years.

Plantations of Ireland The mid 16th century also saw the beginning of the Plantations of Ireland (c – c), whereby the English monarchy parcelled out large areas of land to English, Welsh and Scottish settlers. These new settlers cleared large areas of forest File Size: KB.

Plantations in 16th- and 17th-century Ireland involved the confiscation of land by the English crown and the colonisation of this land with settlers from the island of Great had already been smaller-scale immigration from England as far back as the 12th century, which had resulted in a distinct ethnicity in Ireland.

An extensive survey of the forest plantations oj Northern Ireland revealed that lee slope plantations are exceptionally vulnerable to both windthrow and windsnap. Winds from unusual directions do not pose as great a threat to the plantations as do the prevailing winds.

Windsnap, windtilt and windthrow see the fall of a tree, as the result of either the breaking of the trunk or partial to full uprooting. Damage of this sort in a forest or woodland ranges from single trees, to.
