DescriptionLittle 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.
