Global Forest Logging Equipment Market - Introduction
Logging is the cutting,skidding, on-site processing, and loading of trees or logs onto trucks or skeleton cars. It is the beginning of a supply chain that provides raw material for many products worldwide that is used for housing,construction,energy, and consumer paper products. Logging systems are also used to manageforests, reduce the risk of wildfires, and restore ecosystem functions.
The machines used to carry out this logging process are called forest logging equipment. They include various heavy machinery such as forwarders, harvest processor, feller buncher, and wheeled feller buncher. These equipment make the task of forest logging easier. All equipment used for logging are heavy machines.
