Title: Computer planning tools applied to a cable logging research study

Author: LeDoux, Chris B.; Peters, Penn A.;

Date: 1985

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Contemporary harvest planning software was used in planning the layout of cable logging units for a production study of the Clearwater Yarder in upstate New York. Planning software, including payload analysis and digital terrain models, allowed researchers to identify layout and yarding problems before the experiment. Analysis of proposed ground profiles pinpointed the need for constructed landings, and guidelines for rigging tail and lift trees, and helped define felling and bucking strategies to maximize payload. Considerations in unit layout and yarding strategy not considered by the planning software also are discussed. The harvest planning software proved a valuable tool for cable logging unit layout and design.
