This report presents an analysis of silvicultural systems designed to produce energy biomass from conventional forestry operations in Atlantic Canada. It also analyzes policy changes and incentives that might make biomass energy more attractive in the region. This report also serves as a model for other stand-level studies of this type to be carried out in Canada, and therefore methodological issues such as the appropriate scale and point of view from which to evaluate biomass energy are discussed.
