Biomass Harvesting and Soil Productivity: Is the Science Meeting our Policy Needs?

Description:
Biomass harvesting and associated management practices increase the availability of forest-based feedstocks for emerging bioproduct and energy development of biomass harvesting guidelines by state, national, and international agencies and nongovermental organizations. Site productivity and restricting biomass harvesting on some sites. Field experiements have shown that forest responses to biomass harvesting vary widely and are often counterintuitiev. With site-specific data lacking, BHGs tend to rely on default assumptions supported by best professional judgment.
