Title: Comparison and feasibility of North American methods for harvesting small trees and residues for energy

Author: Hartsough, Bruce R.; Stokes, Bryce J.;

Date: 1990

Source: In: Stokes, B.J., ed. Proceedings of the International Energy Agency, Task VI, Activity 3 Workshop, Harvesting Small Trees and Forest Residues; 1990 May 28; Copenhagen, Denmark. Auburn, AL: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station; 1990: 31-40.

Description: A database of North American harvesting systems was developed. Parameters for each system included site, material and product characteristics, equipment mix and production rate. Onto-truck and delivered costs per green tonne, and breakeven oil prices were developed using standard costing methods. Systems costs were compared over the ranges of piece size, volume per unit area removed, capital/labor ratio and other variables. Feasibilities of various systems were also compared.
