Tasmanian Forest Harvest Residues

Data Description

A polygon dataset that estimates the green biomass volume (green metric tonnes) of harvest residues in planted softwood, planted hardwood and native forest across all tenures in Tasmania, Australia for the purposes of determining availability of biomass for bioenergy, locations and quantities. This information has been collated for the Australian Biomass for Bioenergy Assessment (ABBA) project and will be available for use on the Australian Renewable Energy Mapping Infrastructure (AREMI) platform, to build a national map to service the renewable energy sector.

The annual harvest residue data contained in the feature dataset were derived from a set of 30 year forest harvest simulation models developed as part of the ‘Residues Solution Study’ (http://www.stategrowth.tas.gov.au/forestry/residues). The models were developed in joint by Private Forests Tasmania and Forestry Tasmania.

The harvest residues data is presented for each of the nine Forestry Tasmania supply regions and is classified into four source forest types (All Planted Softwood, All Planted Hardwood, Publicly Managed Native Forest and Privately Managed Native Forest) and three harvest periods (Short Term: 2014-2018, Medium Term: 2019-2026 and Long Term: 2027-2043), expressed as separate layers as follows:

Planted Softwood Harvest Residues Layers: o Harvest Residues Planted Softwood 2014-2018 o Harvest Residues Planted Softwood 2019-2026 o Harvest Residues Planted Softwood 2027-2043 Planted Hardwood Harvest Residues Layers: o Harvest Residues Planted Hardwood 2014-2018 o Harvest Residues Planted Hardwood 2019-2026 o Harvest Residues Planted Hardwood 2027-2043 Native Hardwood Harvest Residues: o Harvest Residues Public Native Hardwood 2014-2018 o Harvest Residues Public Native Hardwood 2019-2026 o Harvest Residues Public Native Hardwood 2027-2043 o Harvest Residues Private Native Hardwood 2014-2018 o Harvest Residues Private Native Hardwood 2019-2026 o Harvest Residues Private Native Hardwood 2027-2043

Disclaimer

The data supplied was produced from predictive models developed from available resource information, and market and owner intent assumptions, as at December 2013, obtained from a range of external sources. As such the actual harvest residue levels to be achieved in any given period into the future will most likely vary from the values provided and the user should seek confirmation from relevant Government agencies and forest managers before using in any investment or other decision making process.

While all reasonable care has been taken in the preparation of the material in this file, the Tasmanian Government and its officers accept no responsibility for any errors or omissions it may contain, whether caused by negligence, or otherwise, or for any loss, however caused, sustained by any person who relies on it.
