Horse bunching of whole trees from thinnings on flat and sloping terrain.
Keywords: Thinning, horse bunching, productivity, terrain, harvesting, silviculture.
AbstractProductivity of horse bunching of whole trees from early thinnings was assessed by means of time studies, using a hand-held micro computer. Productivity which varied from 2.8 to 8.8 steres/hour was found to be dependent upon loadsize and terrain conditions (A stere = cubic metre of loose chips). Suggestions are made for improvements.
