    Flail-delimbing was tested in small-diameter loblolly pine. Most of the limbs left on the stems were less than 6 inches long. Over 75 percent of the delimbed stems had three or fewer remaining limbs. The cost was determined by comparing skidding-flailing with skidding only. The cost difference was approximately $6.00 per unit.
