Integrated Procurement of Pulpwood and Energy Wood from Early Thinnings using Whole-tree Bundling

Description:
In this feasibility study, the required productivity level of bundle harvesting (i.e., cutting and bundling) in Scots pine-dominated stands was assessed by comparing the total supply chain costs based on whole-tree bundling with those of the other pulpwood and energy wood supply chains by means of system analysis.
