    Extensive research defined Reduced-Impact Logging (RIL) as recognized tool to reduce excessive harvest damage while maintaining comparable extraction volumes [11,12,13]. However implementation of both RIL and certification has been limited and additional incentives are required to reach the goal of SFM [ Cited by: 3.

    78 In addition to logging intensity, a recent meta-analysis highlighted the potential of 79 differences in the methods used for logging in determining impacts. Bicknell et al. () showed 80 that for similar logging intensities reduced impact logging (RIL) had less negative effects on animal 81 populations than conventional logging methods. Reduced impact logging (RIL) is one means of reducing the carbon emissions held responsible for global warming. It may also reduce other adverse logging effects. A study of RIL’s effects in Sabah, Malaysia, found 44% reduction of area logged within a tract, 22% reduction in timber yield per logged hectare, and 18% increase in cost per m 3 Cited by:

      There's only one way to interpret low impact logging that I'm aware of and that is to use equipment and methods to limit disturbance to the forest. You can do positive impact forestry with any size equipment but you have a hard time doing low impact logging with big equipment. Projections of differences in carbon stores between the reduced-impact and conventional logging sites rely on assumptions about tree mortality, growth, and recruitment; published, data for comparable sites in Malaysia are probably appropriate for estimating forest recovery from Cited by:

The authors challenge these perceptions in arguing the merits of reduced-impact logging. The economics of reduced-impact logging is the focus of CIFOR-supported studies underway since at two sites in Brazil: Tapajós National Forest, near Santarem, and Curua.

The introduction of reduced impact logging techniques can significantly reduce timber harvest losses (Putz et al., ). Harvesting concessions are generally based on timber volume extracted from. Research Methods for Reduced-Impact Logging iv up phases were also brief, but we hope that the reports are indicative of the hard work and creative energy brought to the workshop by the participants.

The participants’ reports have been grouped by subject matter so that they complement one another. The first group comprises seven papers. future research, is linking carbon payments with improved logging methods. We also suggest that future research should develop a better understanding of how careful logging can increase the resilience of tropical forests to tipping points resulting from the interaction of climate, drought, and wildfires.

Reduced Impact Logging SystemsCited by: 6. Reduced Impact Logging Reduced impact logging (RIL) is a management practice often advocated to reduce damage while maximizing sustained yield. It focuses on diversifying and adding value to forest products, excluding certain zones of the forest from logging, and setting aside areas for wildlife habitat.

Research methods for reduced-impact logging book Impact Logging (RIL) refers to methods used to improve sustainability of logging in the tropics, using a suite of technologies and practices.

The concept of RIL emerged in the early ’s under increasing concern that mechanization of logging practices in the tropics posed a threat to the long-term sustainability of forest resources. Reduced impact logging is usually more practical in remote, selective logging areas of the Amazon basin, as opposed to more intensely logged regions, due to the lower efficiency.

Finally, new research suggests that reduced impact logging techniques may be able to substantially reduce carbon emissions from forestry activities. Boltz et al. discusses many environmental and financial issues relating to conventional versus reduced impact logging in the journal article Economic and environmental impacts of conventional and reduced-impact logging in Tropical South America: a comparative review ().

Six case studies conducted in the Brazilian Amazon, Guyana, and Ecuador are compared in order to identify common trends. the term "reduced-impact logging" and its acronym (RIL) were apparently first used in (Putz and Pinard, ). RIL can be defined as intensively planned and carefully controlled timber harvesting conducted by trained workers in ways that minimize the deleterious impacts of lOgging.

The research looked at 34 different plots in the state of Pará -. Logging is the cutting, skidding, on-site processing, and loading of trees or logs onto trucks or skeleton g is the process of cutting trees, processing them, and moving them to a location for is the beginning of a supply chain that provides raw material for many products societies worldwide use for housing, construction, energy, and consumer paper products.

Economics is a primary reason — waiting for timber stocks to recover after selective logging can take a generation. It is more profitable to harvest and run or convert the concession to an industrial plantation.

However recovery can be hastened, and ecological damage reduced, by adopting reduced-impact logging practices. Elias has a number of work on reduced impact logging. One of these is his case study on the Tropical Natural Forests of Indonesia which was published by FAO in He had prepared a pocket book on Reduced Impact Logging as well as on Felling and Skidding in Reduced Impact Timber Harvesting.

New research from Nature Conservancy scientists indicates that low-intensity selective logging offers both the best and worst conservation outcomes while maintaining wood production, depending on both land tenure security and the use of certified reduced-impact logging methods.

Reduced impact logging (RIL) is a sustainable forestry method as it decreases the forest and canopy damages by approximately 75% compared to the conventional logging methods. Additionally, a year regression model found that RIL would have a significantly higher reforestation in 30 years (“ m 3 ha −1 ”) in relation to conventional.CiteScore: ℹ CiteScore: CiteScore measures the average citations received per document published in this title.
