World Forestry: Forest Harvesting Research in Norway
Abstract:The Norwegian Forest Operations Research Institute recently expedited work to improve the economics of harvesting in the mountainous areas of Norway. Early in this program the Norwegians and the U.S. Forest Service arranged a scientist exchange to share research experience on mountain logging in these areas. The first step in the exchange was to transfer computer-based logging planning technology to the Norwegians. They intend to apply this technology to one segment of their research, which includes interesting harvesting strategies and equipment development as well.
