    Description

    Unusable tree and moss residues from land clearing projects in interior Alaska were collected, milled, dried, and densified into fuel logs. Four different combinations of species were tried, and all produced suitable fuels. The feasibility of commercially producing this material into densified fuel in interior Alaska is limited because the fuel logs tend to expand or decompress during winter storage in unheated buildings there.
