Wood Resource Transportation Analysis System

The Wood Resource Transportation Analysis System (WTRANS) is a spreadsheet based program which allows wood residue users to examine:

  • where hardwood and softwood green mill residues may be located on a county-by-county basis in Tennessee,
  • estimates of transportation and delivered product costs on a county-to-county basis in Tennessee,
  • estimates of transportation and delivered product costs to your county from each county in Tennessee,
  • potential residue needs for energy use, and
  • estimated fuel cost comparisons using residues for greenhouse heating
