predetermined area where cut branches or wood sections will be dropped or lowered from a I tree (see drop zone).
In military terminology a landing zone (LZ) is an area where aircraft can land.
In commonwealth militaries, a landing zone is the cartographic (numeric) zone in which the landing is going to take place (e.g., a valley). The landing area is the area in which the landing is going to take place (e.g., the field where the aircraft are to land). The landing point is the actual point on which aircraft are going to land (e.g., a point of the field). Each aircraft has a different landing point.
