Pulpwood and sawlog production are generally handled under the contract system in the South. This paper deals with the effect of type of road upon costs of hauling, which is a factor usually overlooked in establishing contract rates for producing pulpwood and sawlogs. Both time and cost figures for all operations from felling through hauling are included. Since many operators are now trying to set up contract rates that will qualify under the Wage-Hour law, the information in this paper is timely and pertinent.
