DVD 3 - Arthroscopic Logging - Skidding with Small Equipment (40 minutes)
Using the smartest and smallest equipment possible to safely protect and improve the forest.
Small machinery is used and heavy equipment never leaves the extensive woods trail system, protecting the forest soils. Old fashioned tools – logging arches, levers, wheels, and even true Belgian horsepower are used – picking the best method for each situation. Modern improvements - like adding a radio control to the tractor winch - make these tools even more efficient. “No damage logging is essential to responsible long-term forestry,” adds Birkemeier.
