ANNOTATION: The fuel and energy requirements for alternative energywood harvesting operations were determined from field operations. Comparisons were made among the total energy requirements including transportation for conventional operation and one- and two-pass energywood operations. The two-pass energywood operation required more energy per green ton than the other operations. Transportation required twice the energy as did the woods operations.
