Description: Logging cost simulators and data from logging cost studies have been assembled and converted into a series of simple equations that can be used to estimate the stump-to-mill cost of cable logging in mountainous terrain of the Eastern United States. These equations are based on the use of two small and four medium-sized cable yarders and are applicable for harvests of timber from 6 t o 24 inches in diameter. Cost components can be easily calculated on a hand-held calculator. A computer program that could be adapted to many desktop and microcomputers is available that will calculate the total stump-to-mill logging cost for a specified set of logging conditions. The paper focuses on the application of the stump-to-mill computer model to actual East Coast forest conditions.
