The following questions will determine how much you already know about operational planning — cutblock design.

  1. What do you already know about biodiversity implications and operational planning — cutblock design?
  2. What is meant by the term, cutblock design?
  3. What are the general planning procedures for biodiversity management at the stand level?
  4. What do you already know about windthrow?
  5. What are the windthrow considerations in patch planning?
  6. What are the windthrow considerations in riparian areas?

Biodiversity at the stand level can be effectively maintained through proper planning, assessment, and layout at the block engineering and developing phase.

In addition to biodiversity, various factors including forest operations, worker safety, windthrow, and other specific objectives (e.g., visual quality, forest health) must be incorporated into cutblock design.

A brief discussion of windthrow management and general planning procedures for implementing biodiversity management are described below.
