Description: Technical Report
Abstract: A report on mechanical site preparation techniques is provided as Section 5.7.1 of the US Army Corps of Engineers Wildlife Resources Management Manual. The report was prepared as a guide to assist Corps biologists and resource managers in the use of site preparation techniques and associated equipment on project lands. Habitat development and other revegetation projects often require mechanical site and seedbed preparation prior to and during planting operations. This report provides general information on mechanical techniques and major types of equipment used for these operations. Topics covered are dozers and attachments, chains and cables, choppers and shredders, mowers, plows and disks, sifters and harrows, subsoilers and rippers, furrowing and pitting, and regional considerations. A summary of basic equipment uses and limitations is provided in an appendix. The reader is referred to Chapter 8, EQUIPMENT, of this manual for more detailed information on individual pieces of equipment.
