Estimating time required to cut grapevines in young, even-aged hardwood stands
Southern Journal of Applied Forestry
Man-hours were recorded for cutting grapevines in young even-aged hardwood stands in north-central West Virginia. An equation was developed to predict the number of man-hours per acre needed to cut a given number of grapevines per acre. The predicted times ranged from one man-hour to cut 50 grapevines per acre to about six man-hours to cut 1,000 grapevines per acre.
