Timber Harvesting Research

There is a long history of conducting timber harvesting research on the Research Forests. Research in timber harvesting looks specifically at the methods, technologies, and techniques for harvesting trees to improve machine and human productivity, protect soils, streams and other resources, and improve worker safety. Timber harvest equipment and machines are constantly changing and continued research in this arena is important for finding new and innovative ways to harvest timber in a safe and efficient manner.
