Mode of measurementSpecify the method used for pruning measurement

Per tree

One or several single trees selected. Biomass per tree collected manually and weighted

Per parcel (e.g. 100m2) in bags

One or several parcels selected. Each parcel several trees.
Biomass per parcel collected manually and weighted

Per several rows (or in whole field)

On large parcel, or a whole field is selected.
Biomass collected and loaded to a truck. Weight of the load taken ia a scale for trucks

Total Area measured (m2) :   14347


Amount of plantation removedSpecify the tonnes per hectare of plantation removed and measured. Specify the moisture content if available. Check which part of the plantation is measured and the form of the material-"A":whole piece, "B":chips. Check as many as apply
