    Description

    Traditionally, biomass availability estimates from West Virginia have focused on primary and secondary mill byproducts and logging residues. Other sources of woody biomass are available that have not been surveyed. Through a series of field studies during 2010 and 2011, biomass availability estimates were developed for surface mine sites and log landings in West Virginia. Initial estimates indicated approximately 28 green tons of woody biomass were produced for each acre of surface mine cleared. Furthermore, approximately 2.1 tons of woody biomass per acre of forest harvested were found on log landings. Continued research will help to refine our understanding of biomass availability in West Virginia.
