US Forest Service Woody Biomass Utilization
Deschutes National Forest and Bureau of Land Management
Three separate forest residue (slash) bundling demonstrations took place in central Oregon from September 15 through 26, 3003. The demonstrations took place in ponderosa and lodgepole pine stands located near LaPine, Oregon. Bundling occurred in pre-commercial thinning slash and slash piles from tree length harvesting. Utilization of bundles occurred at the Warm Springs Indian Reservation Tribal Mill as fuel for cogeneration of electricity. Other potential uses included road closure barriers, fish structures, stream stabilizers, erosion control sediment catches around roads and burn areas, waddles, and micro supplies of art material.
