Skyline Analysis & Unit Layout Workshop

October 21st-25th, 2019
CH2M Hill Alumni Center || Oregon State University

Join us for the Skyline Analysis and Unit Layout Workshop at OSU! Taught by experts Loren Kellogg, Jeff Wimer, and Francisca Belart, participants will benefit from 5 days of instruction. Topics will include skyline systems, deflection and payload analysis using the Skyline XL software, unit planning and field layout. Additionally, participants will learn about intermediate supports, tailtrees, corridor layout, anchors, landing design, and safety. Field demonstrations and participant experience with the OSU Koller 501 student logging operations and related skyline thinning layout field exercises will help participants take away practical harvest planning skills that can be applied immediately on the job.

Registration Fee: $650
Registration includes refreshments during breaks, lunch, workshop materials, and transportation to field sites.
