Advanced Logging System-I: Helicopter Logging: Advantages and Disadvantages must be Weighed
Abstract:Helicopter logging may offer certain advantages where road access is restricted or use of conventional logging systems is prohibited, but it may have disadvantages related to cost, slash disposal, cull material handling, and post-harvest land management. It is extremely sensitive to production cost. Ideal use may be to remove scattered trees or pockets of high-value timber.
