Producing wood for energy

The production and preparation of wood to use as energy involves a supply chain which includes managing forests, processing, drying, handling and storing fuel. The way these areas are managed depends on what type of wood energy is being produced and what it will be used for. They can also make quite a difference to the quality and quantity of the end product and the eventual cost of the fuel.

There are a number ways companies can manage the energy required to produce wood to maximise the revenue they make from the sale of wood fuel.
