I don't think the procedures used in Australia/New Zealand would be appropriate to the Pacific Northwest at least after around 1910.  The trees were just too big for jacks and parabuckling. This thread seems to be around transfers. 
I think a robust approach is to use a overhead crane. Attached is a photo from my collection of the transfer at Crane Creek on the Rayonier operations. Malley #38 is pushing empties under the crane. Trucks from the woods come in on the left.
Hope that helps
