    Description

    To determine the yield of whole-tree biomass available from thinning Allegheny hardwoods, 64 sample plots were thinned in poletimber-small sawtimber stands located near Elkins, West Virginia. Biomass yields were derived from cut stand data and whole-tree weight equations, and averaged approximately 60 green tons per acre. Regression equations are given for predicting per-acre green-weight and dry-weight biomass yields from the square feet of basal area and the number of trees removed per acre of thinning.
