The paper deals with the determination of the amount of logging residues including merchantable timber volume (brush) left in the beech stands for further use. Logging residues were recorded in all types of intentional felling starting with intentional improvement felling up to 50 years and ending with intentional regeneration felling. The potential amount of biomass left was divided into the share of brush and the share of small wood. The parameter was monitored for 3 years and all measured values were then statistically evaluated and related to 1 m3 of intentional felling in beech stands. A partial goal of this publication is characterization of economic impacts of the proposal for processing the recorded volume of logging residues left in the beech stands on the forest branch in Smolenice. The economic impacts are characterized in two proposed and mutually compared scenarios. The first scenario considers framework contractors for logging works with their own machines, i.e. by assignments, as a mediation of service invoiced for the assumed amount (m3) forwarded to the roadside landing, with the ownership of the forwarded dendromass belonging to Lesy SR (Forests of the Slovak Republic). Then, the dendromass is sold from the roadside landing to customers who are going to transport and process it at their own expense. The second scenario considers sales of assumed amounts of left dendromass including brush to customers who will provide for its transport and processing on the identified roadside landing within a set deadline under obligation to return the site to its original condition if there is possible damage. In this case, Lesy SR would be only a control body supervising labour quality and set-up technological procedures.
