Title: Is woody residue part of your plan for sustainable forestry?
Author: Page-Dumroese, Deborah

Description: The answer to the title question should be "yes"! Currently, there is a lot of chatter about sustainable forestry and alternative fuels, including conversion of wood to bioenergy. At first glance it may seem like there is a conflict - how can removal of woody biomass be sustainable? Whether you are a small woodlot owner doing sustainable harvesting, looking for rotational forest products, chasing bioenergy products, or looking to use forest "waste" left from thinning or harvesting, one question I am repeatedly asked is: "How much woody material should I leave on my forest site?"
