Biomass removals during harvesting or site preparation cause changes in C and nutrient stores and potentially affect long-term site productivity. We assessed C and N stores in a highly productive coastal Washington site before and after imposing biomass-removal treatments to a year old Douglas-fir/western hemlock stand. Oregon’s energy plan offers a glimmer of hope for biomass energy Advocates hope the timber-rich state’s decision to ditch coal could help revive the struggling industry.
Forest canopy development is known to influence understory biomass relationships. An 85, ha area in southcentral Oregon was examined for changes in overstory canopy closure using and aerial and satellite imagery and a geographic information by: The live wood biomass curve was calibrated by using existing chronosequence field data from 42 sites in the southern Coast Range ranging in age from 40 to about years 3 ; biomass peaked at.
What is forest biomass, how utilization is better than wildfire, and what the emissions look like One third of energy produced in the United States is used for heat. Many rural forest communities in the Northwest are without access to natural gas, which is the preferred heating fuel for its low cost and low emissions. Shifts in morphological traits, seed production, and early establishment of Desmodium nudiflorum following prescribed fire, alone or in combination with forest canopy thinning April Botany

Early plant biomass trends following forest site preparation on the The vegetation following forest site preparation was examined in ten clearcut units located in the western Oregon Coast Range. The site preparation techniques used in these units included scarification, slash burning, and chemical spraying.

We examined changes in total biomass and its components (attrition of coarse woody debris (CWD), growth of shrubs and herbaceous plants, and tree recruitment) over the first 15 years following wildfire in a mountain hemlock (Tsuga mertensiana) forest in Oregon, using permanent plots representing random samples of four levels of fire-severity.

Concerned about the health of Oregon's forestlands, increasingly large and frequent wildfires, and associated expenditures and impacts, the Oregon Legislature passed Senate Bill (ChapterOregon Laws, ). The Oregon Forest Biomass Working Group (OFBWG) was established in November to meet the directives in established by.
The C accumulated in the C. equisetifolia plant biomass increased markedly with stand age. The annual rate of C accumulation in the C. equisetifolia plant biomass during 0–3, 3–6, 6–13 and 13–18 yrs stage was, and Mg C ha −1 yr −1, respectively (Table 6).Cited by: estimating biomass and leaf area of plants in the pacific northwest H.

Because of this research, Oregon's forests now in the Coast Range can reach 2 m, so these equations could. Introduction. Forest ecosystem carbon (C) stock represents an important measure of the global C balance.
C is predominantly stored in live biomass and soils, and to a smaller degree, in coarse woody debris .Standing biomass C stock accounts for 82–86% of all aboveground C stock, while forest soils are estimated to contain about 73% of the global SOC stock [2–3].Cited by: 6.
This comprehensive plus-page study examines the implications of using woody biomass from thinning overcrowded forests as a renewable source of energy, which at the same time could help restore forest health, reduce the vulnerability of forests to fire and revitalize rural economies. Bioenergy or biomass energy—the energy from plants and plant-derived materials—has been us ed since humans began burning wood to cook food and keep warm.
Wood is still the largest biomass energy resource today, but other sources of biomass can also be used. : This file provides tree wood and foliage aboveground biomass for the years, and File 3. : This file provides soil chemistry and bulk density data for the years, and Site Preparation for Tree Planting in Agricultural Fields and Hardwood Forests • FNR Figure 3.
