Description: Logging cost simulators and data from logging cost studies have been assembled and converted into a series of equations that can be used to estimate the cost of logging young-growth coastal Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii [Mirb.] Franco var. menziesii) in mountainous terrain of the Pacific Northwest. These equations were developed for two small cable yarders and one medium-sized yarder and are applicable for harvests of timber from 6 to 24 inches in diameter on slopes of 10 to 50%. Cost components can be easily calculated on a hand calculator. A computer pogram that can be adapted to many desktop computers and that will calculate the total stump-to-truck logging cost for a specified set of logging conditions is also available.
