dc.description On-the-ground harvest unit layout, especially in skyline-thinning operations, is critical to meeting multiple resource objectives of the land manager and maintaining the economic viability of the timber harvesting operator. This phase of an operation can optimize the layout and harvesting of a sale or unit. Detailed layout by a knowledgeable professional can help to identify areas in the sale or unit that may be operationally or economically unfeasible to thin. This publication is an overview of practical methodology aspects for the layout of skyline thinning operations. The information presented is drawn largely from the personal experiences of the authors, the individuals cited, and publications from research at Oregon State University. The publication provides a general outline of the components of the overall planning process that results in the implementation of skyline thinning operations on the ground. en
