Forest and logging residues offer several possible waits to reduce carbon footprint and produce renewable energy in the rural sector. Converting fossil-based energy systems into renewable energy systems is an essential strategy to the reach targets set by the Kyoto Protocol. For nations with an active logging industry, salvaging logging residues or slash to produce bioenergy has a huge potential for development. However, removing forest woodfuel may have ecological consequences, notably for saproxylic biodiversity but also critical in degreaded ecosystems. The consequences of such removals on biotic assemblages in temperate and tropical forests remain poorly documented in comparison with boreal forests. There are several management techniques developed and almost all regions in the world have documented research. While considering  native and exotic species, a combination of research and consultancy is the only way companies may produce energy sustainably and providing profits and generating employment along the bioenergy chain. To develop biomass to energy projects and business plans based on forestry residues require from a strict vision accounting inputs, optimized logistic chains and afforestation/reforestation schemes.
