    Description

    An Appalachian hardwood timber stand that contained 6,700 board feet per acre of sawtimber was harvested by clearcutting. After the merchantable sawlogs were removed, this stand contained 69.3 tons per acre of green wood residue. Thirty-three and one-third tons of residue were from tops of merchantable sawtimber; 36 tons were from residual trees. Treetop residue yielded 1,800 board feet of marketable sawed products and 26 tons of chippable wood. The residual trees yielded 3,000 board feet of sawed products and 25.6 tons of chippable wood. The overall weight of residue was about 1.8 times greater than the weight of sawtimber removed.
