  • About the Edition

    Logging planning and layout costs were examined for commercial thinning of 40- to 50-yr-old stands of Douglas-fir on the Willamette National Forest in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon. The study consisted of four replications of three silvicultural treatments. Thinning involved three types of logging systems: mechanized cut-to-length (a combination of single-grip harvester and forwarder), tractor, and skyline. Data for the study came from two sources: activities completed by the Forest Service in preparing sales for bid, and the layout completed by the logging contractor after a contract was awarded. Planning and layout costs showed no consistent relationship to type of silvicultural treatment. Logging contractor layout costs showed a relationship to type of logging system: the mechanized system had the lowest layout cost, followed by the tractor systems, with the skyline systems having the highest costs.

Methods for logging planning such as those summarized in the paper will clearly not answer all the questions on concerns about logging planning. However, methods such as those summarized can be used to make more visually and aesthetically acceptable decisions. Literature Cited 1 L~Doux, C.B.

Logging conservation practices must take into account broad ecosystem impacts from timber harvesting, such as such as soil compaction, erosion, sedimentation of water bodies, damage to residual trees, and numerous impacts surrounding roads and skid trails (erosion, increased access for illegal activity, increased exposure to invasives, etc.

Tax and Accounting Service for Logging and Timber Industry For instance, by its very nature, timber as a business venture has a very long investment period, which corresponds to the length of time it takes for timber to mature, until it reaches the point where it can provide income through logging.

You may want a road for transporting wood, recreation or access. The six lessons in this module will guide you through the basics of planning and building a road suitable for small woodlots.

Also, modern agroforestry practices allow growing other fruit crops, like berries, as an understory crop with the right tree spacing. Ginseng, another high-value crop, can be grown under a canopy of trees.
