Title: Machine to harvest slash, brush, and thinnings for fuel and fiber - a concept
Author: Koch, Peter; McKenzie, Dan W.;
Source: Journal of Forestry Vol. 74(12): 809-812
Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: It is proposed that biomass from non-commercial thinnings, and from logging slash residual after harvest, be lhogged and recovered for fuel and fiber. Such a procedure might yield two dividends of biomass totalling as much as 90,000 kg per ha (40 tons per acre, gree weight basis) from each rotation of southern pine. For sites deficient in organic matter, it is alternatively proposed that residual biomass be hogged and returned to the forest floor-either uniformly distributed or concentrated in bands.
