The article discusses a study on the resource flow patterns for residue and green wood entering recycling yards and landfills in southeastern Michigan. A list of disposal yards and wood residue processing facilities was compiled using the Michigan Department of Natural Resources database and directory listings while field studies of seven residue yards were conducted. It suggests that with proper equipment and training, a large supply of quality wood economically justifiable for a strategic shift towards value-added solid wood products can be created.
