 The  need  for  wood  in  our  country  is  increasing  day  by  day.  Accordingly,  wood  production  also increases. The wood harvesting is a very important subject for forestry. Especially, productivity of machine, the quality of wood and environmental effects are tied due to forest transport plans. When the transport planning is made incomplete, various mistakes are occurred during wood harvesting. The importance mistake inside these situation is decreasing of wood quality. The forest transport structures in Turkey forestry are forest road, skid road, skid trail, chute system and skylines. Forest roads are main facilities which provide access to forest lands for extraction, regeneration, protection, and recreation activities. The forest roads should cover the forest areas in the form of a network system. In our country, is located in the forest areas of the mountainous regions often. Therefore, the construction of forest roads is very difficult and expensive.  The skid roads and trails are helped for movement of tractors and animals within harvesting areas. There are some rules in the constructions of skid roads and skid trails. Besides, chute systems and skylines are used to wood harvesting. These systems are more sensitive  for  environmental  effects  and  also,  these  systems  are  productivity.  In  this  study,  the  importance  the forest transport planning operations and wood harvesting for my country are investigated. The prepare rules of forest transport planning are determined.
