Amazonia Reforestation can have high calorific values. For example, Acacia mangium has a calorific value of 4,900 kCal/KG (8,800 BTU/lb), while Eucalyptus pellita has a calorific value of 4,800 kCal/KG (8,640 BTU/lb). That makes these woods not only useful as potential firewood sources, but of great value for the manufacture of wood pellets. Bottom line, managed plantations can produce significant quantities of valuable calorific biomass for renewable energy purposes.
green investment today will pay off handsomely in the near future.
