DescriptionMechanical fuel treatments are machine activities designed to change the size and arrangement of forest biomass by either severing stems and creating smaller fragments (mastication) or by removing these stems from the site (bundling, baling, biomass harvesting) for disposal or utilization. Cost of mechanical fuel reduction treatments is defined as the money spent in mechanical fuel reduction activities.
