    We evaluated potential interactions of stand type, harvesting method, and equipment in an experiment using interactive simulation. We examined three felling methods (chain saw, feller-buncher, harvester) and two extraction methods (grapple skidder and forwarder) performing clearcuts, sheltenvood cuts, and single-tree selection cuts in both an uneven-aged natural stand and uneven-aged planted stand. Elementai time, distance traveled, travel intensity, and hourly productivity were estimated for each combination of stand type, harvesting method, and equipment. This technique provides a useful tool for comparing alternative systems in a range of harvesting situations.
