The EU is committed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, the targets include reducing emissions, substituting fossil fuels with renewable energy, and increasing the use of wood materials in construction. This will have the major effects on the dynamics of carbon in the forest ecosystems, with major challenges to needs to sequestrate and retain carbon in ecosystems when producing timber and energy biomass. Carbon and energy input calculations are, therefore, important to evaluate the contribution of forests and energy biomass in reducing emissions and storing of carbon.
