The guidebook explains that harvest residue is increasingly in demand to be used for fuel with the goal of expanding the bioeconomy.

It encourages forest residues to be used for this environmentally friendly practice rather than be burned or left to rot by the roadside.

The publications explains that this residue could be used to create hog fuel, chips, wood pellets or firewood. It goes on to describe piling practice based on machinery and transportation.
