The Use of Unit Cost Data in Estimating Logging Costs and Planning Logging Operations
Abstract:The necessity for adapting logging methods to the requirements of selective cutting and to the test of low-cost production has raised many practical questions, such as which is cheaper, teams or tractors? What is the proper spacing for skid roads? Can such problems be determined short of actual trial? This article illustrates for southern conditions how such questions can be answered if a small amount of basic data about the stand and suitable production costs is available.
