The purpose of the study was to analyze differences and similarities between sections that were excluded in the study in 2002 (Krč, 2002) due to being appropriate for mechanized cutting and sections where mechanized cutting was already carried out. District foresters were surveyed about appropriateness of work sites. An analysis of weather conditions was carried out for work sites where traces of reduced soil bearing capacity were detected. A quantity analysis was performed for all work sites. Field research was carried out in November and December 2010 in the Postojna Forest Management Unit. In total, fifty-two work sites measuring 626 ha were recorded. Work sites were divided into the work sites of adjusted mechanized cutting and the work sites of full mechanized cutting. The analysis showed that mechanized cutting was also carried out on slopes greater than 30 % and in the work sites where rockiness was evaluated with the fourth class according to the Canadian scale. The shareof conifers in the growing stock was never below 50 % in any work site, it mostly ranged from 70 % to 90 %. District foresters evaluated the work sites of full mechanized cutting as being better. Problems with soil bearing capacity occurred in only 20 % of the work sites, we could explain most problems with the analysis of weather conditions. The analysis of the cutting amount showed that in most cases the intensity of cutting is 50-75 m3/ha. The prediction of the appropriateness of sections for mechanized cutting in 2002 agrees best with the real situation in a loose variant of restricting factors (a slope up to 40 %, above 60 % conifers and rockiness up to 60 %).
