DescriptionCable logging, once used extensively in the Appalachians, is being re-examined to see if smaller, more mobile systems can help solve some of the timber-managment problems on steep slopes. A small Austrian skyline was tested in West Virginia to determine its feasibility for harvesting enstern hardwoods. The short-term test included both selection and clearcut harvesting. Both yarding costs and environmental effects were analyzed.
