Helicopter logging

There a several ways to get timber out of the forest, but perhaps the most spectacular method is by helicopter. This video shows a helicopter in action in Canada where the large distances and remoteness of the forests make this a viable option. It has been tried in the UK...the first time was in 1956 at Glenduror, near Fort William by the Forestry Commission.
