DescriptionTimber-use studies in Ohio show that multiproduct harvesting could be improved. The recovery rate from these operations, expressed as a ratio of the merchantable stem biomass estimate, is 103 percent. Although current methods of multiproduct harvesting have improved recovery of the merchantable stem, an estimated 1,539 thousand fresh tons of total residual biomass were left unused in 1978. Modifications of present multiproduct harvesting systems could increase the recovery of aboveground biomass.
