The effects of harvesting on timber quality

South African Forestry Journal ( 147): 53-62

The effects of harvesting on timber quality

A comprehensive discussion based on a review of world literature. Timber harvesting and timber quality are defined and discussed. Timber quality requirements for various end uses are outlined. The effects of harvesting on timber quality are identified for each activity in the process, i.e. felling and skidding (in relation to damage to either felled stems or standing trees), and primary conversion, transport and storage (in relation to damage and defects in logs).
