Cut to Length Logging
Cut to length logging is a system where trees are cut in short lengths and hauled to landings rather than dragged. This keeps the wood clean and prevents damage to retained trees. This is a safer method because workers remain in enclosed and protected machine cabs. This method is also more environmentally friendly. There is less soil disturbance than in skidding operations, there is no slash dumped in landings, and a higher retention of nutrients in harvested areas.
