Abstract
FERIC studied the productivity and effectiveness of directional-felling heads in tolerant hardwood selection cuts. The feller-directors proved capable of handling the demands of this type of operation, and delimbing quality matched or exceeded that achieved with feller-bunchers. However, the feller-director with the smaller carrier and low-capacity head encountered more difficulty than the larger head-carrier combination. Delimbing the stems using the feller-directors decreased productivity, but not enough to make the operation uneconomical.

Abstract
In the Kootenay Lake and Arrow Forest Districts of southeastern British Columbia, harvest planning and selection of harvesting systems must be responsive to high recreation and tourist values and the visually sensitive slopes. In 1992-93, the Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) monitored harvesting on small patch clearcuts, and the British Columbia Ministry of Forests conducted site-disturbance surveys. On one study site, both ground skidding and cable yarding were used, in summer and winter seasons; at the second site, on ground pressure skidders were used and only in summer.

Abstract
Selection harvesting of tolerant hardwoods typically stops during the spring and early summer when there is heightened concern over damage to soils and residual stems from felling trees and machine activity. A feller-buncher and an 8-wheel forwarder modified into a clambunk skidder were evaluated as a lower impact alternative to conventional cable or grapple skidders to operate during the traditional shutdown period within acceptable guidelines for soil disturbance, residual stem damage and trail occupancy. This study showed that the feller-buncher and clambunk skidder used for single-tree and group selection harvesting could potentially extend the logging season into the spring shutdown period without exceeding local site impact guidelines.

Abstract
Qualified fellers with experience in selection cutting of tolerant hardwoods are increasingly difficult to find. This represents a potential wood supply problem that could be alleviated through mechanized harvesting. In the present study, FERIC evaluated the degree of protection of the residual stand and the costs of hardwood selection harvesting with a Timbco T-445 feller-buncher and cable skidders. The influence of various work methods and a various terrain or stand conditions on these factors was also analyzed.

Abstract
During the summer of 1997/98 and 1998/99, Weldwood of Canada Limited Hinton Division conducted partial cutting trials in riparian forests adjacent to the McLoed River near Hinton, Alberta. FERIC monitored the harvesting operations to determine harvesting productivities and costs, and to assess the operational suitability of using mechanized harvesting systems for partial cutting in riparian areas. Ways to improve productivity and decrease residual stand damage are suggested.

Abstract
In 1999, FERIC studied a group selection partial cutting operation in an Interior Cedar-Hemlock (ICH) stand, about 90km north of Revelstoke, B.C. A Madill 071 multi-drum cable yarder harvested the site using northbend, gravity skyline (shotgun), and running/scab skyline configurations. The study objective was to evaluate the economics and operational feasibility of using skyline yarding systems for partial cutting in the ICH biogeoclimatic zone. This report describes the results of this case study.
