Quantifying Residue after an Intermediate Harvest of a Second-Growth Redwood Stand

Buy Article:


Logging residue was examined following an intermediate harvest that removed 40 percent of the basal area of a mature second-growth coast redwood stand. Tree pieces at least 1.5 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length qualified as residue. Cable logging produced 844 cubic feet of residue per acre, 22 percent more than tractor logging--possibly because of crushing and breakage by tractors during skidding. The authors conclude that low volumes and present markets make it uneconomical to use residue for building materials or fuel.
