The two phases harvesting methodology allows to manage and schedule the chipping operations as in function of moisture content of the stored biomass. In this study we evaluated the loss of moisture of medium rotation forestry plantations, considering four different times of cut. The results obtained have shown the possibility to reach, during the first days of June, humidity levels between 36 and 45% by felling down the plants between December and mid March.
