Stump harvesting can affect the emissions of methane and nitrous oxide

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in Report

Abstract

The emissions of the greenhouse gases methane and nitrous oxide were
consistently low in relation to carbon dioxide emissions at four experimental sites.
Stump harvesting did not seem to affect the emissions of methane and nitrous
oxide. Soil moisture was a major factor for methane emissions – independent of
soil treatments. These studies are the first ones in the world and should be
interpreted with care until further data have been obtained.
