Abstract
Estimates of fuel consumption were made for six harvesting systems used in typical coastal British Columbia forest operations. Five of the systems - grapple yarding, highlead yarding, skyline yarding, helicopter yarding, and loader forwarding - were in clearcuts. Another system consisted of loader forwarding in a partial cut. The proportion of wood harvested by each of these harvesting systems was also determined, based on a survey of coastal British Columbia forest companies. This study was part of a larger research effort on life-cycle analysis addressing the impact of forest operations on the environment.

Abstract
The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) studied a heavy-lift helicopter logging operation performed in coastal British Columbia. Sikorsky S-64E and S-64F Skycranes were used to harvest small clearcuts on steep mountain slopes that could not be easily developed for conventianal cable yarding. The report presents harvesting productivity and cost, and describes factors affecting the operation.

Abstract
In 1992 the Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) studied a heavy-lift helicopter logging operation on the Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia. The study was part of a Fish-Forestry Interaction Program project to investigate the feasibility of using alternative harvesting and silvicultural systems to harvest timber from potentially unstable terrain. The study provided information on the productivities and costs of helicopter logging in clearcuts, patch cuts, and single-tree selection cuts, using a Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane equipped for choker logging. Information on basal area removal levels, damage to residual stems, and ground disturbance was also collected. Production and cost functions were derived from detailed-timing and shift-level data to predict helicopter yarding productivity and cost by harvesting treatment for yarding distances of 100 to 1 500 m.

Abstract
The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) studied a light-lift helicopter logging operation in low-volume cedar stands on the central coast of British Columbia. A Bell 214B helicopter was used to harvest group and single-tree selection units. This report presents productivity and cost information for the helicopter logging operation, and discusses factors affecting the efficiency of the operation.
