Plantations are typically used for efficient production of forest products such as solid wood, pulp or energy feedstocks, but the objective of most forest management is integrated production of multiple goods and services, including a mixture of consumptive and non-consumptive outputs such as non-timber forest products (NTFP) and ecological and recreational services. During recent decades, utilization of previously unutilized biomass such as harvesting residues and small trees from silvicultural thinning operations as feedstock for bioenergy has become an additional harvest assortment from forestry, especially in Fennoscandia (Röser et al. 2003).
