Common Characteristics of Six Successful Mechanized Small-Tree Harvesting Operations in the South
Abstract:Southern forest industry personnel were surveyed to identify successful small-tree harvesting (thinning or prelogging) operations. Eighty-seven percent of the operations identified utilized a feller-buncher/grapple skidder harvesting system, and six operations of this system type with a range of capital investment were chosen for further intensive study. Selected cost and production measures of comparison are presented, and common characteristics are summarized for the six operations studied. South. J. Appl. For. 12(4): 222-226.
