Helicopter Logging.

Helicopter logging or heli-logging is used to harvest timber in more challenging locations like the type of steep mountainous terrain found in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Compared to traditional logging operations, helicopter logging is considered a more sustainable form of timber harvesting. Traditional logging requires the creation of extensive forest roads, often in formerly roadless areas, to give crews and equipment access to the harvest site. In helicopter logging, felled trees are lifted vertically, reducing the negative environmental impacts typically associated with traditional timber harvesting operations.

Witness Tree Media created visual stories of helicopter logging operations coordinated by the United States Forest Service in challenging terrain on public lands outside of Minturn, Colorado in the White River National Forest.
