  1. Permanent Roads– Primary or secondary roads constructed to provide all- or nearly all-season access for silvicultural activities, and are maintained regularly.
    • Primary Road– A high specification permanent road which is maintained regularly and serves as a main artery in a network of roads.
    • Secondary Road– A permanent road that is maintained periodically, installed for transporting wood products and with a secondary use for other forest activities.
  2. Temporary Road– A road constructed for a specific use or single operation and normally retired upon completion of the operation.
