The main features of the approach to damage reduction were: previous surveying and careful construction of roads and skidding trails, climber cutting and directional felling. Harvested volume was 20 m3 ha exponent -1. The number of damaged trees over 10 cm in diameter was 5.3 per tree logged and the volume of damage was 0.27 m3 per cubic metre extracted. Damage caused to the canopy by road and trail cutting, provision of landings and felling damage amounted to a maximum canopy opening of 15 per cent.
