DescriptionThis xction explains the harvesting system selected. based upon topography, soil condition, and tree size. It is a highly mechmized, capital intensive system which includes tracked feller-bunchers to cut and bunch the trees. and trucked forwarders to transport the bunched trees to a whole tree chipper. The chips will be loaded into vans and transported to a designated site. The total capitul cost. irrciuding support equipment, will be $14,104.000 and the annual operating expenditure will be $6.164.837.
