Abstract : Damages by terrain-vehicles on the ground and growing trees is a problem of increasing importance in forest operations, primarily in thinnings. These damages cause considerable loss of volume and quality yield in subsequent harvesting operations. The importance of this problem is expected to increase for several reasons. One is the continuously increasing area of thinning stands due to an uneven age distribution of Swedish forests.
