ANNOTATION: As the values of wood products increase, there are more economic opportunities to utilize residues. This is true both for dead-and-down materials and for previously unharvested stands which, together, make up the potential economic residues resource. A variety of research efforts are developing the information and technology necessary to take advantage of these opportunities. The key to minimizing future residues problems is to fully integrate residues considerations with overall forest resource planning.
