ANNOTATION: This paper addresses the imbalance of unused resources, costs of on-site fuel treatment, electrical power demands, technology and economic deficiencies in harvesting and transportation, and the shrinking average size of trees being harvested. In this paper two examples of integrated harvesting systems that produce energy wood and emphasize decisive allocation of the entire above-ground tree biomass are discussed. The processing systems and reasons for their approach are also discussed
