    Description

    The cost and utilization were compared for a thinning operation removing the stems as roundwood with a flail chipper operation. The flail chipper operation recovered an additional 4.2 tons of acceptable chips per acre which resulted in a higher return to the site. There was little difference in the cost of acceptable chips delivered to the digester between the two methods of thinning.
