Title: Key Indicators of Successful Logging Jobs in the Northeast

Author: Herrick, Owen W.;

Date: 1976

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Uncertainty and inadequate information for prediction hinder attempts to judge the chances for success on logging jobs. In this study, variation in the success of commercial logging jobs in the Northeast was examined to relate the kinds of conditions present to the chances of logging being most successful under those conditions. Respondents rated half of the sample logging jobs most suceessful; they agreed that these jobs were excellent business ventures compared to other recent logging jobs. Splitting the sample on key variables substantially improved our ability to explain success on these logging jobs. Among 22 characteristics, total timber harvest, hauling distance, crew size, and distance from the preceding job were key determinants of the most successful jobs.
