      Oyier, Paul Okanda (University of Canterbury, 2015)
      Fuel is a major cost in logging and is also relied on by logging contractors in New Zealand to adjust unit logging rates in dollars per cubic metres ($/m3). There is however, no benchmark on fuel consumption rates in litre ...
    • Fuel consumption of timber harvesting systems in New Zealand 

      Oyier P; Visser RJM (2016)
      Fuel is a major cost in timber harvesting operations. Changes in fuel cost are also typically used by forestry companies in New Zealand to adjust unit harvesting rates. There is however no benchmark on fuel consumption rates ...
    • Fuel moisture and development of ignition and fire spread thresholds in gorse (Ulex europaeus) 

      Anderson, Stuart Alexander James (University of Canterbury. Forestry, 2009)
