This report is a review of available information on the influence of yarding systems on erosional processes in the Pacific Northwest and the Queen Charlotte Islands. Literature was reviewed and the relevance of these studies to forest harvesting on the Queen Charlotte Islands is discussed, and discussions with local Queen Charlotte Islands' forest company and agency staff are incorporated. Yarding systems that were considered potentially effective in reducing mass wasting are also noted.
