Salvage logging due to insects*


Volume of stemwood with bark of all trees and shrubs starting at 12 cm dbh removed from the forest as a result of damage occurring between two inventories, in this case insects, and not because of management planning. This feature is derived on the level of a sample plot from the cutting of the sample trees and the salvage cut proportion (according to information from the forester). *In the calculation no D7/tree height data were used. The values calculated like this have not been corrected for bias, but allow for cantons or forest districts a more robust estimation of changes and could thus be better interpreted.
