Amount and Characteristics of Logging Residue on Harvested Areas in Vermont
Abstract:An assessment of the type and volume of logging residue was completed for 49 harvested areas in Vermont (manual felling, ground skidding). The line intersect technique was used to sample residue in the areas. On a per-acre basis, the mean volume of logging residue was 264 ft³ with a range of 69 to 797 ft³. The average volume of residue found in a soft-wood stand was 169 ft³ with a range of 69 to 313 ft³. The average volume of residue found in a hardwood stand was 329 ft³ with a range of 69 to 797 ft³. The average piece size was 3.4 in in diameter at the small end, 6.1 in at the large end, with a length of 16.3 ft and volume of 1.6 ft³. North. J. Appl. For. 3:63-65, June 1986.
