Document Description
The proposed project will assess current and developmental post-fire salvage logging best management practices (BMPs) at Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest. The developmental designs are intended to further reduce runoff and sediment delivery from skid trails to the stream network. We will establish an approximately 1.2-acre test site to compare current and alternative BMPs and determine their effectiveness at reducing sediment delivery and rill formation. Skid trails will be constructed and treated using a variety of best management practices, including the standard BMPs required under the California Forest Practice Rules. Comparisons will be made using runoff experiments designed to simulate sheetflow. The test site will also function as a longer-term demonstration site, where the current and developmental BMPs will be monitored through one winter to assess their effectiveness under natural precipitation
