Energy Plantations

These are large-scale tree plantations aimed at the production of timber for energy generation, for example eucalyptus for charcoal production for the pig iron industry or timber plantations for the production of wood chips or pellets to be used for heating and/or electricity production. The increasing trend in the European Union to use woody biomass tends to drive more tree plantation expansion, not only in the global North but also increasingly in the South.
