Spruce-Fir Selective Logging Costs
Abstract:The economic feasibility of partial cutting methods is not commonly accepted. In spruce-fir stands of pulpwood size in the Northeast, logging with horses on partial cuttings removing 10 to 60 percent of the stand shows that costs do not exceed clear-cutting costs, with strong indications that selective cutting will become definitely cheaper than clear cutting as experience is gained. Selective cutting facilitates woods operations in some respects, in addition to offering important silvicultural advantages.
