The fourth step of the harmonisation process is to build bridges (Ståhl et al. 2012) between national deﬁnitions and the agreed reference deﬁnition. The analytical decomposition of the criteria and thresholds during the process formed the basis of this work. Information on the criteria and thresholds assists in the identiﬁcation of where the differences are and how to build a bridge to transform national data into comparable data. This way of working is diverse and challenging depending on the context and differences between the deﬁnitions.
Many projection systems are based on a stand-wise description of the forest, examples of which are found in Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Hungary, Ireland and Lithuania. Irrespective of the description of the forest, some kind of a growth model must be applied in order to express the development of the forest under a pre-deﬁned management. These growth models can be developed using NFI plot data, experimental plots or a combination thereof. Permanent as well as temporary plots can be used to develop growth models as demonstrated by examples from Finland, Sweden and Portugal.
Tree-top, branches and stumps, but these parts of trees are rarely estimated. Short rotation coppice is also planted speciﬁcally to rapidly produce biomass for fuel. In areas with a low forest cover trees outside forests (TOF) and hedgerows have become a possible source of 8 C. Vidal et al. energy. But few countries are assessing wood resources on these areas and if any are, it is not at all in a harmonised way as shown in Chap. 2 of this book. Finally, a large part of the energy wood resource is composed of industrial residues and wood waste.
