Biomass, productivity and nutrient cycling are demonstrated for typical boreal mixedwoods and the consequences of full-tree logging and biomass harvesting are considered. Data for other boreal stands such as black spruce indicate that dry outwash sand plains and organic soils may not sustain full-tree logging. In mixedwoods indicate that full-tree logging can probably be sustained. This is more likely is slash is left. Phosphorus, however, may still become limiting. The consequences of site preparation methods are discussed.
