We analyse 18 years of post-logging data from Sabah, Borneo to evaluate the impact of two selective logging methods – Supervised logging (SL) including pre-aligned skid trails and directional felling, and conventional logging (CL), where trees are felled before the crawler tractor is called in for skidding and fellers have no formal training in felling techniques. Furthermore, the logging treatments are either combined with- (CC) or without (NCC) pre-harvest climber cutting.
