    Description

    The recovery of total tree biomass and most components of a stand is a practical economic and management alternative to tree-length harvesting. First, the increased utilization of woody biomass provides additional revenues from the site. Second, the removal and utilization of the stems and crowns reduces site preparation costs and makes tree planting easier. Third, from a different perspective, better utilization helps provide an additional resource of raw materials from an already declining inventory of standing timber in the Southern United States.
