A majority of the text is concerned with the specific aspects of silvicultural activities which relate to nonpoint source pollution control methods. Analyzed are existing and near future pollution control methods in terms of technical and economic practicability and usefulness. It provides information of a general nature regarding processes, procedures, and methods for controlling pollution caused by sediment runoff from logging roads, skid trails, and other areas of undisturbed soils in forest areas; pesticides and fertilizers used in forest regeneration activities; chemicals and other materials applied for forest fire prevention; and temperature increases in small streams exposed to solar radiation by logging of bordering timber stands.
