In the Intermountain West, private, nonindustrial forests typically woodlots of 15 to 150 acres comprise as much as one-third of the forestland. Yet the owners of these forests commonly do not have forest management plans or the assistance they need to create such plans. Wild Logging slices through the "airy idealism of environmentalists and the steel-toe practicality of loggers" to teach methods of sustainable forest stewardship tailored to the West. Wild Logging covers the rudiments of forest management: inventorying your forest and establishing management goals; developing appropriate timber-harvesting methods and hiring a logger to implement them; and managing your forest estate for the future. In engaging interviews owners of western forestland share their practical experiences. Technical sections cover such basics as how to develop a management plan, protect your property from wildfire, and write a timber harvest contract.

I've been an environmentalist, with a strong interest in forest issues, for decades. For many years, I've looked for a book that would give me an entry-level introduction to the nuts and bolts of forestry, timber harvest and sustainable practices. This book delivers that, and more. The prose is personal, yet extremely clearly written. Using vignettes from real life folk on the ground, the author walks the reader through numerous issues faced by forest landowners. The book demystifies how board feet of lumber is estimated, how timber harvests are planned and carried out, the use of fire, etc. Although definitely written from a pro-conservation perspective, this book avoids polemics and ideology and focuses instead on solutions within the reach of landowners. The result is a very informative, and pleasant, read.

This book is simply a collection of stories about different people and how they have managed their woodlands. There is no in-depth discussion of logging methods, and little about the economics of the business. The book seemed aimed at people who want a little hobby to go with their land.

This book provides interesting case studies about the management of (mostly) western forestland. The layout of the book is a little choppy (the sidebars interupt the arc of the greater storyline) but the insights into the personalities that are preserving our forestlands for future generations make it worthwhile. The book provides good introductory level information that is practical and useful for forest landowners.
