Abstract: A perfect storm has set a focus on a need for an essential set of forestry skills - forest engineering. Recently we have enhanced planning requirements in the National Environmental Standards for Plantation Forestry (NES-PF), public scrutiny resulting from ‘slash tsunamis’, an increased emphasis on safety, and a steady transition to more difficult terrain. What is forest engineering? Forest (or logging) engineering is the application of scientific and mathematical principles to the planning, design and analysis of logging operations and transportation systems. (no keywords)
