Abstract Stump heights were measured on six clear-cut blocks in the central interior of British Columbia using a systematic sampling method. Felling method, ground slope, species and stump diameter were analyzed to determine their effect on stump height. Mechanized felling with a feller-buncher resulted in lower stumps by 5.5 cm on average than those from manual felling with a chainsaw. The wide range (9.6 cm to 23.4 cm) of the average stump heights sampled from six clear-cut units indicates… Expand

The effect of coppice management on stump volume recovery in mechanized operations
Key messageCoppice stands result in slightly higher stump waste compared with planted stands, when felled mechanically by a harvester.ContextThe large demand for wood fibre requires efficientExpand
Mortality, re-sprouting vigor and physiology of coppice stumps after mechanized cutting
Cutting technology had a significant effect on cutting height and cutting damage, but it had no effect on mortality, re-sprouting vigor, and nutrient balance within the stumps, at least in the first growing season. Expand
Application of Terrestrial Laser Scanner to Evaluate the Influence of Root Collar Geometry on Stump Height after Mechanized Forest Operations
It is suggested that other factors than the ones studied can also contribute in influencing stump height during mechanized harvesting operations, including pre- and post-harvest scans of trees selected for removal. Expand
Mechanized coppice harvesting with new small-scale feller-bunchers: results from harvesting trials with newly manufactured felling heads in Italy.
Abstract The revival of coppice management is being considered as one option to satisfy the increasing market demand for wood biomass. Commonly used harvesting systems in coppice forests (CF) areExpand

Thinning is a necessary silvicultural activity for restoring the long-term sustainability of pine forests in much of the southwestern United States. In northern Arizona, a landscape-scale restorationExpand
Review of studies on motor-manual felling productivity in eucalypt stands
Globally, about 20 million ha of land area is occupied by plantations of Eucalyptus. Motor-manual tree harvesting techniques (using chainsaws) are still applied in eucalypt plantations, especially inExpand
Cost production study of motor-manually felling and processing of logs.
Felling is an important component of harvesting system. Motor-manually felling and processing was studied in Nowshahr in Northern forests of Iran. The elemental time study method was used. FellingExpand
Assessing the influence of forest ownership type and location on roundwood utilization at the stump and top in a region with small-diameter markets
Research conducted in a variety of hardwood regions across the United States has indicated that utilization of small-diameter roundwood is hindered by a lack of markets. Efficient removal of suchExpand
