ANNOTATION: Whatever decisions are to be made concerning the possible use of forest residues, questions always arise about the costs of collecting and transporting them to a place where they might be used. The residue cost model consists of a series of seven tables, which allow the estimation of the collection costs of the types of residues common to the northern Rocky Mountains. The cost tables were developed from published studies of both conventional logging and residue collection.
