Yarding logs with a standing skyline cable system in a partially cut hardwood stand injured or destroyed about 7 percent of the residual stand-stems larger than 1 inch d.b.h. One tree per acre was abraded, 16 per acre were skinned (sapwood exposed), two per acre suffered root damage, and 15 per acre were destroyed. Results of this study were compared with published reports on tree injuries caused by cable yarding and skidding with crawler tractors and rubber-tired skidders in the eastern and western United States.
