    Description

    The STHARVEST computer application is Windows-based, public-domain software used to estimate costs for harvesting small-diameter stands or the small-diameter component of a mixed-sized stand. The equipment production rates were developed from existing studies. Equipment operating cost rates were based on November 1998 prices for new equipment and wage rates for the Pacific Northwest. There are four ground-based and two cable harvesting systems. Harvesting costs can be estimated for both clearcutting and partial cutting for an average tree size ranging from 1 to 80 or 150 cubic feet depending on the system selected. Cost estimates are in U.S. dollars per 100 cubic feet or per green ton.
