Abstracts
This paper assesses the technology involved in commercial forest harvesting and delivery operations. It investigates existing forest-based production capacity and its potential to supply the startup of large scale forest-based industries. A survey of harvesting and transportation workforce and technology was mailed to 1,130 logging firms operating in Michigan and four Wisconsin counties that adjoin Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The response rate received was 28%. The paper details and analyses the different operational matters, conditions, equipment and transportation use reported by logging firms. The study provides technical forest products operations information and methods for assessing the capacity of logging firms and markets looking to expand their businesses.
