DescriptionThis study evaluated the costs of mechanized harvesting systems being used on forest health improvement projects on the Mescalero Reservation in New Mexico. Three feller bunchers with diiering slope capabilities were used. Grapple skidders delivered whole trees to a flail/chipper for processing into pulp quality chips.
