Abstract

Scenic beauty is one attribute that foresters consider when planning a silviculture treatment. To better understand how scenic quality changes in the years following a harvest, six sites on Oregon State University's research forest were evaluated annually for 11 years. Regression analysis was used to describe the change in average ratings over time. Initially there were differences between sites, but as stand development continued those differences diminished substantially.
