    Description

    Traditional measures of volume inadequately describe the total aboveground wood resource. The 1980-82 inventory of Maine included estimates of aboveground tree biomass on timberland. There are nearly 1,504.4 million green tons of wood and bark in all trees above the ground level, or 88.2 green tons per acre of timberland. Most of the biomass is in growing stock, but 49 percent is in the tops and branches of trees, cull trees (including noncommercial tree species), salvable dead trees, saplings, and stumps above the ground.
