Forest Oriented Mechanization 790852

The need for small, versatile, relatively low cost forest oriented timber harvesting equipment is a natural outgrowth of forest management as expressed through logging. Logging initially was dominated by horse energy, then by the adaptation of construction machinery to woods use, and now by woods equipment of special design. More compact forest oriented equipment utilizing successfully demonstrated principles has the potential for greatly intensifying forest management on small ownerships which constitute the bulk of America's commercial forest acres. Incentive is provided not only by present and future demands on wood for construction, furnishings, and fiber, but also as a renewable source of energy.
