Technology Improvement in Logging

Since 1990, advances in Oregon forest operations technology over the last 20+ years have changed logging and forest management techniques at a lightning fast pace. Continuous improvement in forest engineering and operations helps meet America’s demand for forest products, while complying with ever-improving ecological demands. Technology has been a key to better care for the forest environment, as well as improved safety, productivity, growth, and fiber utilization.


Aboutlogging imageLogging Machines

Oregon timber harvesting operations employ many different machines that are unique to logging, forest road construction, fuels treatment and other forest management activities in Oregon forests. Often called “heavy equipment,” many of these specialized machines are purpose-built, sized, and designed for the exacting demands of the particular forestry task assigned. These logging machines are grouped into categories, based on their function: logging, landing, road, or service.
