Estimating Logging Residue Weights from Standing Slash Pine for Prescribed Burns
Abstract:The weight of logging slash per unit area must be known before the slash can be safely burned. In open stands of slash pine (Pinus elliottii) the weight of this crown material can be quickly estimated from data normally gathered in timber cruises: cordwood volume and average tree diameter.
