With the growing interest in bioproducts and renewable energy sources, how can we assess the availability of logging residue in Canada? At the Canadian Forest Service, researchers used field data combined with estimates obtained through remote sensing of cut rates and stand characteristics for Canada’s managed forests. This enabled them to create a map to help estimate potentially available logging residue across the entire territory over the coming decades.
