Abstract in English:
The main objective of our work was to verify through technical and economic analysis the sustainability of introducing advanced mechanization in poplar plantation logging in Italy. Nine logging systems, with different levels of mechanization, were analysed and compared, taking into account technical and economic parameters. From the economic point of view, the system with advanced mechanization offered interesting profitability with 32.18% return on investment (ROI) for an average capital investment of 370,000 , while for the traditional logging system the ROI is 17.46% for an average capital investment of 50,000 . From the technical point of view, 68 hectares per year were harvested using the advanced system, while 17 hectares per year were harvested using the traditional system. The results hint at the very high potential of advanced mechanization in the management of poplar plantations.
