The aim of this study was to analyze the effects of intensive management and forest landscape structure (in terms of age class distribution) on timber and energy wood production (m3 ha−1), net present value (NPV, € ha−1) with implications on net CO2 emissions (kg CO2 MWh−1 per energy unit) from energy wood use of Norway spruce grown on medium to fertile sites. This study employed simulations using a forest ecosystem model and the Emission Calculation Tool, considering in its analyses: timber… CONTINUE READING
