Last year Mr. Rapraeger made a study of the use of motor trucks in log hauling in Oregon and Washington for the purpose of pointing out the conditions under which they can be economically employed and to determine the factors contributing to their limitations. Since then, three reports have been prepared, one for The Timberman one for the American Lumberman and the following article for the JOURNAL OF FORESTRY. This article for the JOURNAL differs from the others in that it describes for readers in other districts how trucks are employed in the Douglas fir region. Our truck loggers are using motor vehicles under conditions which are often extremely difficult. To overcome these obstacles, they have designed new equipment and developed better loading and hauling methods, many of which are applicable to regions facing similar conditions.
