Productivity of cable thinnings of young stands can be improved by first prebunching the wood along the skyline corridor and then swinging it to the landing. Data from field studies, as used in a new simulation model, show that logging managers deciding whether to prebunch must consider the number and distribution of logs, log size and diameter class, deck spacing, lead angle, and equipment configuration.
