Branch Biomass of Norway Spruce as a Potential Raw Material in Some Geographical Locations in Southern Norway

J. Dibdiakova
An increasing demand for forest biomass to energy is leading to a more intensive harvesting of timber, also including an exploitation of the crown biomass. This sets new demands for forest inventory systems to generate more detailed information about the forest biomass fractions. Norway has unutilized forest resources, which can be used for bioenergy. These also include Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.). The material was sampled from three different locations in Southern Norway from...
