In British Columbia, stump removal was first tested in 1968 as a method of reducing the spread of root disease into regenerating stands (Morrison et al. 1988). Over the last few decades, stumping, as it is also known, has been practiced throughout the province in forests infected with the root disease fungi Armillaria ostoyae, Inonotus tomentosus, and Phellinus weirii (Sturrock 2000). Given the growing interest in bioenergy in the province (Province of British Columbia 2008), and the increasing popularity of stumps as a feedstock for bioenergy plants in Europe (e.g., Bjorheden 2006; Hakkila 2006), it is timely to consider the viability of using stumps as an energy source in British Columbia.
