Author: Howard, James O.; Setzer, Theodore S.;

Date: 1989

Source: Res. Pap. PNW-RP-405. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 36 p

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Detailed information on logging residues in southeast Alaska is provided as input to economic and technical assessments of its use for products or site amenities. Two types of information are presented. Ratios are presented that can be used to generate an estimate, based on volume or acres harvested, of the cubic-foot volume of residue for any particular area of southeast Alaska. Separate ratios are given for live and dead or cull material, and for net and gross volume. Tables display per-acre residue volume by various characteristics that might affect either use or disposition. These tables show net or gross volume, or both, by diameter and length classes, by origin, by percentage of soundness, by degree of slopes and distance to roads, and by number of pieces of residue per acre.

Keywords: Southeast Alaska, logging residue, slash, residue estimation, fuel wood, residue management
