There are tradeoffs between biomass production and water flow and quality impacts.

Necessary Negotiations of Bioenergy Development

When it comes to planting trees for bioenergy feedstocks, there are tradeoffs to be made.

Whole-tree aspen logging promotes renewable biomass energy from tops and branches,
      parts of the tree that are often left in the forest during logging in favor of the
      tree’s trunk — using the residual that remains after a sustainable harvest for logs.

Whole-tree Harvesting Could Boost Biomass Production

Making the shift to renewable energy sources requires biomass, too.
