This study was conducted to understand the biomass and the energy content of 48-year-old Pinus densiflora stand planted in Mt. Wolak, Jecheon-si, Chungcheongbuk-do, Korea. The total biomass of aboveground was 138.14 ton/ha (87.3 ton/ha from stemwood, 41.43 ton/ha from live brances, and 9.41 ton/ha from leaves). Annual net production (ANP) of aboveground was 10.85 ton/ha/yr, and the ANP of stemwood, live branches, and leaves were 5.3 ton/ha/yr, 2.93 ton/ha/yr, and 2.62 ton/ha/yr, respectively. Energy content of aboveground was 2,981 GJ/ha, and annual energy accumulation was 239 GJ/ha/yr. The leaf area index (LAI) of P. densiflora stand was 6.58.
