Estimating Biomass and Nutrient Removal from a Northern Hardwood Harvest
Abstract:We compared actual removals of biomass and nutrients from a whole-tree harvest with estimates made from biomass equations and nutrient data in the literature. The estimated values from the literature were suitable for assessing impacts of nutrient removals, but they overestimated biomass removals by an average of 19 percent.
