Title: A computer program for analysis of fuelwood harvesting costs

Author: Harpole, George B.; Rensi, Giuseppe;

Date: 1985

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. FPL-46. Madison, WI: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory; 1985. 18 pages

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: The fuelwood harvesting computer program (FHP) is written in FORTRAN 60 and designed to select a collection of harvest units and systems from among alternatives to satisfy specified energy requirements at a lowest cost per million Btu's as recovered in a boiler, or thousand pounds of H2O evaporative capacity kiln drying. Computed energy costs are used as a criterion of economic viability. Sensitivities of energy costs and fuel requirements to changes in moisture content are computed and provided in the printed output.

Keywords: Wood/bark fuel, harvesting, economics, computer program
