DescriptionTimber harvesting systems and their costs are a major concern for the forest products industries. In this paper, harvest costs per cord are estimated, using computer simulation, for current southern pine harvesting systems. The estimations represent a range of mechanization levels. The sensitivity of systems to factors affecting harvest costs - machine costs, fuel prices, wage rates, tract size, and planted stands - is examined to determine trends in harvest sytems and costs.
