Models of management measures and direct costs of cultivation and felling operations have been constructed within the research project 1G58031 “Importance of close-to-nature silvicultural systems for the forest stability and production and non-production forest functions”. For the purpose a model arrangement was established at the forest stand 626/A9/01b in the forest district Klokočná, Forest enterprise Konopiště belonging to Forests of Czech Republic, state company. The comparison shows that considerable cost saving in cultivation operations ban be influenced significantly by used felling technology. Also, costs of harvester technologies fluctuate depending from the provider and/or supply-and-demand situation. Total direct costs of the two compared management practices in the investigated forest stand are similar in case we admit the possibility to do approximately 20% of felling operations in the shelterwood management with harvester technologies. With (hypothetical) increasing this ratio the shelterwood system becomes more cost-effective than clear-felling system.
