Harvesting & Management costs ($/t) by woodlot size for 83 Woodlots at 2017-18 log prices

If Harvesting costs (cost to log and load on truck) plus harvest management costs are combined and graphed against woodlot size, there is little evidence of a relationship, i.e. costs should reduce slightly with scale of operation. These costs vary significantly and can be affected by terrain, location, soil type, and availability of equipment and labour.
