Good Practice Guide: Production of Wood Fuel from Forest Landings
Wood fuel is a clean and renewable energy source. Burning wood fuel has a low net greenhouse effect as the CO2 given off is absorbed by the growth of the next crop. Wood fuel is playing an increasingly important role in generating energy. Wood fuel includes any woody biomass suitable for energy production, such as branches, bark and stem wood. The focus of these guidelines is on residues from landings – currently the largest unused source of woody biomass. Aimed at experienced forestry contractors, this guide outlines proven methods for extracting wood fuel from forest landings.
