Likelihood of Damage = Environmental Factors + Management Factors

or

Windthrow Risk = Biophysical Hazard + Treatment Risk

 

Windthrow Risk: is the likelihood of damage from endemic peak winds.
Biophysical Hazard: is the intrinsic stability of the stand in its pre-treatment condition.
Treatment Risk: is the way in which a particular treatment (e.g., cutblock boundary orientation) increases wind loading on residual trees.
