    The classification of forest terrain gives knowledge about the operational conditions. The classification is arranged methodically in such a way that one terrain class means the same independently of local landscape and terrain conditions. The classification must also be based on basic knowledge of equipment and. operational methods used in forestry. All forestry work is included, such as transport and logging; cultivation, constructional work, road building, etc. The classification of terrain a nd operational systems should take into account the correlation between terrain, transport network, operational method and equipment.
