the renewable wood resource
Timber harvesting can be a complex activity, from the cutting phase to the delivery of logs to sawmills. Today, the global volume of industrial wood production reaches two billion m³ per year (FAO, 2020). Given the growing demand from the construction industry to decarbonize construction, global wood consumption is expected to continue its upward trend.
However, wood-producing countries may be confronted with logging difficulties due to the particularities of their forest territories (slope, altitude, soil type, distances). These obstacles generate high financial and environmental impacts for the creation and maintenance of the infrastructures necessary for log transport.

The forest is also a victim of looting and illegal logging. More broadly, the creation of forest tracks to collect wood paradoxically leads to passive deforestation, especially in tropical forests.

The LCA60T solution opens the way to a more responsible model, which will facilitate the work of foresters in constrained areas, without damaging the local ecosystem with roads and tracks, avoiding degradation of existing but fragile infrastructure and at a lower cost.
