    Description

    This study notes the increasing concern over logging residue in forest land management and describes the various administrative and technological means for accomplishing reductions of logging residue. Alternative sales arrangements can include such things as reduction of stumpage charges for low quality logs or required yarding of unutilized material to the landing or to some stockpiling or disposal point. Improvements in materials handling can include use of logging systems that create less breakage or that can handle small pieces more efficiently. Specialized chip mills and increased chip markets, including chip exports, can give added incentive for removal of formerly unutilized material. Other potentials for utilization are also indicated.
