AbstractFull Text

Regeneration of eucalypt plantations from coppice is increasingly being used in Australia to reduce re-establishment costs. Coppiced plantations are thinned to one to three stems per stool or left unthinned. However, little is known about the impact of differing stem numbers per stool on harvester...

AbstractFull Text

Harvester-forwarder systems are the predominant ground-based harvest system in use in many parts of the world, including Australia. Whereas harvesters can operate on slopes up to 60% (31 degrees), forwarders are restricted to slopes of 45% (24 degrees) due to their high centre of gravity and lower...
