Investigating of Residual Tree Damage During Ground-Based Skidding

Ahmad Solgi and Akbar Najafi

The study aims assessed the damages caused by skidding compared with the damages reported in other logging and skidding studies. Skidding had been conducted using cable skidders. After finishing the skidding operations, a field survey was done to collect data of all residual trees (species, DBH, height) and of tree wounds (size class, location and intensity of damage). Two types of damages were recorded: scarring and root damage. Results show that approximately 80% of the residual trees were damaged and that 52% of the residual trees have been affected by at least one new damage.
