Title: Cost and utilization of above ground biomass in thinning systems

Author: Watson, Billy; Stokes, Bryce;

Date: 1994

Source: In: Proceedings of the meeting on Advanced Technology in Forest Operations: Applied Technology in Action; 1994 July 24-29; Portland/Corvallis, OR. Corvallis, Or: Oregon State University: 192-201.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The cost and utilization were compared for a thinning operation removing the stems as roundwood with a flail chipper operation. The flail chipper operation recovered an additional 4.2 tons of acceptable chips per acre which resulted in a higher return to the site. There was little difference in the cost of acceptable chips delivered to the digester between the two methods of thinning.

Keywords: Flail delimbing, debarking, woodlands chipping, logging costs, thinning
