Planning Large-scale Logging Operations

P.C. Crequer

Logging planning aims at attaining the quantitative, qualitative and cost targets preset by forest management in order to effect the regular harvest of the forest resource. These targets determine the scope and size of the logging operation; but, in order that appropriate decisions may be made, all possible alternative courses of action must be recognized and realistically evaluated.
Competence in this field presupposes that the process of logging, its constituent elements, and their relationship to the field of forest practice as a whole are fully understood. Cognizance must also be granted to the socio-political overtones particular to the environment in which the logging operation is being carried out, in as much as they demand modification of otherwise theoretically correct decisions.
