Title: Potential residual biomass in mature pine stands of the Midsouth, U.S.A.
Author: Rosson, J.F. Jr;
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: The extent, location, and ownership of residual woody biomass available on mature pine timberland prior to the harvest of log-size pine was determined for the Midsouth States. Most of this residual is on non-industrial private timberland. Sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua L.) and loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) are the dominant species in the residual. Stems of all species < 25 cm in diameter comprise most of the residual (66%). A preharvest biomass operation may be the most efficient way to take advantage of these substantial levels of woody biomass.
