ENHANCED SYLVICULTURE OF STEEP FORESTS THROUGH USING CABLE HARVESTING SYSTEMS
With affection to the progression of cable harvesting systems, these project goals to approve cable harvest systems definite to steep forests, merging the sylvicultural activities wishes with the environmental restrictions.
About fifty exclusive harvest gadgets could be observed comparing distinct harvesting alternatives like cable-mat, and telephonic cable structures with traditional harvesting structures.
The comparisons include:
Traits of the materials; characteristics of the woodland stands (topographic, soil, stand description, sylvicultural remedies influencing the stand, along with thinning’s, depth of harvesting, nature of wooden products, infrastructure, environmental considerations);
traits of the traditional harvest system (cubic meters harvested/hour, price in line with cubic meter/in keeping with hour, according to hectare) impact on the soil and at the stand.
Based on those analyses, the challenge will permit the evaluation of different combinations for defined sites, specifying sylviculture and the cloth for use in mountainous forest regions concerning technical financial profitability as well as the effect of the surroundings and the multifunctional necessities of sylviculture in these areas (manufacturing and protection function especially).
These program pursuits not most effective to enhance sylviculture and rural activities in mountainous regions, however, to avoid non-exploitation of mountainous forest stands. Without a solid and longtime sylviculture, the equilibrium of these regions, which can be very critical for soil and avalanche protection, can be irreversibly damaged.
