Title: When is hardwood cable logging economical?

Author: LeDoux, Chris B.;

Date: 1985

Source: Journal of Forestry 83(5):295-298

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Using cable logging to harvest eastern hardwood logs on steep terrain can result in low production rates and high costs per unit of wood produced. Logging managers can improve productivity and profitability by knowing how the interaction of site-specific variables and cable logging equipment affect costs and revenues. Data from selected field studies and forest model plots, as used in a simulation model, indicate that managers must consider cable logging technology, average slope distances required, volume and size of material cut, tree species and market price, and silvicultural treatment proposed.
