Title: Comparative seed-tree and selection harvesting costs in young-growth mixed-conifer stands

Author: Atkinson, William A.; Hall, Dale O.;

Date: 1963

Source: Res. Note PSW-19. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 3 p

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Little difference was found between yarding and felling costs in seed-tree and selection harvest cuts. The volume per acre logged was 23,800 board feet on the seed-tree compartments and 10,600 board feet on the selection compartments. For a comparable operation with this range of volumes, cutting method decisions should be based on factors other than logging costs.
