ANNOTATION: The framework for harvesting and utilization opportunities for forest residues includes a number of long standing as well as recently enacted statutes. Air and water quality standards as set forth in legislation also have an effect on utilization opportunities. A further emerging factor pertaining to the harvesting and utilization of the forest biomass is our land base, and its availability. Recently the Senate has enacted a number of bills dealing with the question of timber economics.
