Summary - Figuring out when and which tress to harvest are just the first couple of decisions that need to be made before removing timber from a property. Next, the logger must figure out how to physically get the trees on the ground, moved to the roadside landing, processed into logs, and loaded onto trucks. Loggers have a variety of options when it comes to the number of different workers, tools, and pieces of equipment they can use to get the job done. In order to choose the best harvesting system, site characteristics, weather, price, access, landowners preference, and other factors play into the decision. Learn about how to match the different harvesting systems to the right site and discover some innovative approaches used in the NE and around the world. Presented by Dr. Ben Spong, Forest Harvesting Specialist, West Virginia University.
