The Forest Research Institutes's work on cable logging: A review of its main findings

G. Murphy

Cable logging will become more important as harvesting moves into steeper terrain where logging is about twice as expensive as on flat country. The hauling phase is the high cost centre for cable logging, with extraction distance and volume extracted per haul being two of the main factors affecting production and costs. Production can be improved. by using methods which take into account these and other factors.
