DescriptionThis chapter provides estimates of forest biomass and wood waste quantities, as well as roadside costs (i.e., supply curves) for each county in the contiguous United States. Roadside price is the price a buyer pays for wood chips at a roadside in the forest, at a processing mill location in the case of mill residue, or at a landfill for urban wood wastes prior to any transport and preprocessing to the end-use location. Forest biomass and wood waste resources considered in this assessment include: Forest residues (logging residues and thinnings) from integrated forest operations from timberland, other removal residue, thinnings from other forestland, unused primary and secondary mill processing residues, urban wood wastes, conventionally sourced wood.
