The crisis in the forest industry, climate change and the growing world demand for energy are all arguments for using forest biomass to generate energy. In light of this, the recovery of logging residues (tree branches, foliage and crowns) appears to be a promising option for reducing fossil fuel use, while also diversifying forest production.
