It's possibly an over sight, but I *feel* that a 1lb birch sapling should not produce 100ft of birch bark strip in the spring.. or ever..

Neither should 1lb spruce sapling produce 20 twigs == 8lbs of twigs... ( I'm not going to go into repeated twig harvest; there's no need to add the record keeping of how many twigs each tree has grown and which are dry and which are still growing and how many have been snapped/cut off)

Suggestion: limit peel and twig yield of saplings to 1/10 of those from young/full grown trees.
