What does logging mean?

Logging is the process of cutting down trees, an element of the logging task. The person who cuts down the trees is a feller. A feller buncher is a machine capable of cutting down a single large tree or grouping and cutting down several small ones simultaneously. In manual felling, an ax, saw or chainsaw is used to cut down a tree, followed by brushcutter and cutting in traditional applications.

In the modern commercial timber industry, logging is often followed by delimbing and trawling. Logging is the process of tearing down individual trees, an element of the logging task. Directional felling is a specific tree cutting technique in which the operator determines the direction of fall before cutting. Wherever possible, trees should be cut down in the direction of existing gaps in the canopy to reduce damage to nearby standing wood.

In general, trees should be felled towards or away from the skating rinks, preferably at an oblique angle to the sliding direction. Felling away from the slide path will reduce problems for the extraction team when the treetops are large, while felling to the slide path can substantially reduce the extraction distance. Average number of scrubland shoots after 1 and 6 years of regrowth on stumps of three species that were 6-year-old shoots when they were cut down in February, April or June 1993a. In this case, the clear-cut treatment is called a group selection harvest followed by immediate replanting.

Maintenance logging is the periodic felling of some immature trees to allow valuable species to become dominant, to improve the quality of wood and to increase the productivity of a forest. For example, in a two-storey stand of mature poplar (understory) and young spruce (understory), the main use felling is used to remove poplar and maintenance felling in the removal of spruce (to provide more light and weaken the competition of the roots). If the tree needs to be removed and you suspect that logging will affect a power line, call the power company. A forest regeneration system that opens the canopy through small groups of felling (small crops) that create spaces where regeneration can occur is often referred to as a group selection harvest practice.

The first and second types of maintenance logging are carried out every two to three years, the third type every five to ten years and the fourth type every ten to 15 years. Felling and removing trees from a forest to obtain wood and renovate, improve and increase the productivity of a forest. If that is not possible, drop the tree from a position where the limbs cannot hit it if they break off. Some secondary forest species are found in the tropics, and others grow in open spaces by rivers, in ancient landslides, in hollows caused by the fall of dead trees or trees, or where the forest has been knocked down by severe storms.

Average length of the three longest shoots growing from stumps of young trees of 6-year-old ash (Fraxinus excelsior), oak (Quercus robur) and sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus) trees demolished in February/June 1993.These (initial) geysers saved the felling of seven mature pines within a year after their installation, for the project team, it was an impressive result and a compelling reason to improve the initiative. There is a notable increase in wood production since the start of the first forestry plan for this property. This was an experiment carried out with regard to the cutting of trees and the continuous cutting of trees in boom corridors, which could lead to an increase in the productivity of the harvester.
