Title: Evaluation of Chipper-Forwarder Biomass Harvesting Concept

Description: A chipper-forwarder system offers an alternative for biomass harvesting. Components are a small feller buncher for felling and bunching, and a chipper-forwarder that chips at the pile and transports the chips to roadside. In a case study on a mixed pine and hardwood site in Georgia after conventional hawesting, production rates and cost estimates for a prototype chipper-forwarder were developed. At a forwarding distance of 153 m the cost of chipping and fowarding was estimated to be between $15 and $25 per dry tonne depending on initial investment assumptions.
