Abstract

In addition to fiber and wood production, there has been renewed interest in using forest biomass for energy production through both direct combustion and through technologies to produce liquid fuels from wood. In addition, growth and productivity of forests have important potential implications in terms of carbon sequestration and carbon credits because growth is directly related to carbon removal from the atmosphere. To better meet these current and future biomass related objectives, there are several important issues that need to be better understood related to growth potential, biomass partitioning to different aboveground stand components, and nitrogen demand and partitioning among stand components.
