Description: The PPHARVST computer application is Windows-based, public-domain software used to estimate harvesting costs for management planning for ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws.) plantations. The equipment production rates were developed from existing studies. Equipment cost rates were based on 1996 prices for new equipment. Harvesting systems include a cut-to-length harvester-forwarder system, a whole-tree/log-length skidder system, and a skyline cable system. Harvesting costs can be estimated for both clearcutting and partial cutting for trees ranging from 3 cubic feet to 250 cubic feet. Cost estimates are in U.S. dollars per 100 cubic feet.
Keywords: Costs (logging), logging economics, timber management planning, younggrowth stands, ponderosa pine
