Two forest stands located in the province of Alberta, Canada, one of white spruce and one of lodgepole pine, were inventoried for their residual forest biomass following tree-length logging.
In addition to estimating the quantity of fuel available for energy the study was also intended to compare the effectiveness of two sampling methods; the transect method and the weighing method.
The main results are as follows: Lodgepole pine (weighing) 34.25 ODt/ha (oven-dry tons/hectare); (transect) 32.21 ODt/ha White spruce (transect) 40.93 ODt/ha
