Various Harvesting Methods


Harvesting is a general term for cutting, processing, and extracting timber from stump to roadside ready for transporting to wood processing plants. Managed harvesting systems do not in any way resemble the devastation caused by illegal or unmanaged logging systems. Logging practices vary from large-scale commercial timber plantations to individuals harvesting fuelwood.

The only realistic way to conserve our forests is to apply sustainable forest management practices.” Rainforest Alliance
