Abstract

The most readily available source of woody biomass is through whole-tree harvesting that removes what has been traditionally left as slash [i.e., fine woody debris (FWD)]. While FWD has the potential to be used as energy feedstock, a critical element of managing for biodiversity is maintaining woody debris on the forest floor.
