  Energy crops are not a new innovation. Forest plantations dedicated to the production of wood for energy have existed in many countries for some time (NAS, ), though most of them are small, use poorly developed technology and generally focus on supplying fuelwood for local consumption.. In temperate zones, there are a number of fast growing tree species suitable for energy . Forests and energy Key issues. Cover photos, from left: pulp to transport fuels and specialized chemicals may become more widespread forests are likely to be too high in many cases to prevent conversion to bioenergy crop production if markets develop in line .

Forests and energy 3 Preface Forests and energy are at the centre of the global debate on climate change. This document is intended to bring together in one place some of the most important trends in both the forest and energy sectors to help enlighten this debate. It represents the first step in a major analysis of the impacts of new energy. Energy and nutrients, or chemicals, flow through an ecosystem. While energy flows through the ecosystem and cannot be recycled, nutrients cycle within an ecosystem and are reused. Both energy flow and chemical cycling help define the structure and dynamics of the ecosystem.

Flow of Energy. To survive, One of the most beloved and iconic native species within the old growth redwood forests of California is the Pacific Banana Slug. These slimy friends of the forest are the ultimate recyclers. Ecosystems require constant inputs of energy from sunlight or chemicals. Producers use energy and inorganic molecules. The values society places on our forests—wildlife habitat, clean water, recreation, carbon storage and wood products—depend on them remaining as forests. That’s why esteemed organizations such as the Nature Conservancy and, closer to home, the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and New York Audubon, have been preaching.

Forests & Energy Context - In coming years, the world’s energy consumption is expected to increase dramatically. While fossil fuels will remain an important source of energy, renewable energies will also gain importance, as a result of concerns over high fossil fuel prices, increasing greenhouse gas emissions and energy import dependence.
