Animal logging is one of the traditional logging systems, some researches on production-cost of Animal Logging have been carried out in the USA, Chile, China and India. After determining the work elements, continuous time study method was used to develop wood hauling models for billet, pulpwoods and billet hauling with special equipment. Production in billet hauling was 2.135 m3 /h, billets hauling with special equipment 3.275 and pulpwood hauling 1.246 m3 /h, costs according to contract were; 1.67 dollar/ m3 , 1.09 dollar/ m3 and 3.58 dollar/ m3.
