Title: Machine to harvest slash, brush, and thinnings for fuel and fiber- a concept

Author: Koch, P.; McKenzie, D.W.;

Date: 1976

Source: Journal of Forestry 74(12):809-812

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: It is proposed that biomass from noncommercial thinnings, and from logging slash residual after harvest, be hogged and recovered for fuel and fiber. Such a procedure might yield two dividends of biomass totalling as much as 90,000 kg per ha (40 tons per acre, green weight basis) from each rotation of southern pine. For sites deficient in organic matter, it is alternatively proposed that residual biomass be hogged and returned to the forest floor- either uniformly distributed or concentrated in bands.
