Benefits of Helicopter Logging
The rewards that can be ascertained from using a logging helicopter are numerous. For example, Helicopter Logging is a more effective and efficient process. Productivity can even be as high as collecting 15 tonnes or more of harvested timber in a month's time. Stems fall more often when the use of traditional logging methods are put into effect and helicopter logging is more environmentally sound.
Lifting timber straight up with cables results in less damage to the forest floor and surrounding structures are less likely to be affected. Further, there is no need for damage to forestry due to the creation of roadways to and from the harvesting location. Beyond these elements, there is also the fact that helicopter logging services can remain productive throughout the months when colder or inclement weather threatens more often. Conventional logging requires more manpower on the ground which can be dangerous, to begin with but is made even more so when severe weather develops.
Timber harvesting that helps the Environment
The helicopter logging solutions our affiliates deliver are also capable of completing harvesting tasks in less time than it would generally take a ground crew. The process of harvesting timber using the Erickson S-64 has increased not only productivity but due to the heli logging process of lifting the timber directly up and out of the ground, commonly called standing stem harvesting, has made the process more environmentally beneficial. Further, as opposed to cutting trees and allowing the timber to fall and then being dragged out across the forest floor which ultimately leads to damage to surrounding trees and new growth, as well as has a destructive impact on the soil, now care can be taken to leave the forest practically undisturbed.
The most popular among the aircraft utilized by our associates, the S-64 sky-crane is used in a variety of ways in timber harvesting. The conventional methodology involves the sky-crane picking up fallen trees and carrying them out of the first. The favored method among helicopter logging crews is standing stem harvesting. This method encapsulates a helicopter, the S-64, lifting trees that have been topped and cleaned of leaves and debris out of the ground and carrying them out of the forest. Additional equipment that may be used on occasion within a variety of heli logging methods can be flown in and assembled on hillsides to bunch and organize logs for maximum efficiency.
