Title: Productivity and cost of marking activities for single-tree selection and thinning treatments in Arkansas

Author: Sydor, Tymur; Kluender, Richard A.; Busby, Rodney L.; Pelkki, Matthew;

Source: Forest Products Journal 54(3): 59-65

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: An activity algorithm was developed for standard marking methods for natural pine stands in Arkansas. For the two types of marking methods examined, thinning (selection from below) and single-tree selection (selection from above), cycle time and cost models were developed. Basal area (BA) removed was the major influencing factor in both models. Marking method was signigicant in predicting the total time of the activity but not significant in estimating the cost per 10 ft.2/acre of BA removed.
