Abstract

In this study, the performance of two terrain-going cable yarders was studied and used in a system analysis which included processing then forwarding to roadside, or whole-tree skidding and processing at roadside. The potential application for such systems was evaluated in GIS, and the investment costs in appropriate machinery was compared with the cost of extending the road network for access to conventional yarders.
