“Glossary of Terms Used in Timber Harvesting and Forest Engineering by Bryce J. Stokes, Colin Ashmore, Cynthia L. Rawlins, and Donald L. Sirois
‘T’he terminology used in forest engineering and harvesting has evolved over many years, beginning with the early lumberjacks who cut trees for homes and industry. Wth increased mechanimtion since the arly 1940%s, the meanings of some terms have changed, and many new terms have been added. Changes in forest management and increased utilization of the forest brought about by new products have also added to the scope of forest engineering terminology. With the increasing cost and complersity of forest operations, there is an ever-growing need for standardization of forest engineering terminology. The objective of this publication is to provide a glossary sf definitions for a broad group of terms used in forestry and in forest engineering, with an emphasis on harvesting. This list of terms and definitions should result in better csmmunication among pmple involved in forwt engineering. A literature reGew was conducted to assemble the terms from publish& source in an attempt to exclude colloquial rermiinolom, The literature citations refereneed for each term follow the definition (in parentheses). References are listed in the literature cited section. Pdthough this collection does not include all timber hamesting and forest engineering terms, it is hoped that the compilarisn will provide a sufficiently extensive glossaq far farest operations- The references listed an be used as sources for terms not found in this publication.”
