Natural Resources: Woody Biomass Users’ Experiences Offer Insights for Government Efforts Aimed at Promoting Its Use
Robin M. Nazzaro (au)
The fed. gov’t. is placing greater emphasis on thinning vegetation on public lands to reduce the risk of fire. To defray the cost of thinning efforts, it also is seeking to stimulate a market for the resulting material, including the smaller trees, limbs, & brush -- referred to as woody biomass (WB) -- that traditionally have had little or no commercial value. The increased use of WB faces obstacles, including the high cost of harvesting & transporting it & an unpredictable supply in some locations. This report: (1) identifies key factors facilitating the use of WB among selected users; (2) identifies challenges these users have faced in using WB; & (3) discusses any insights that these findings may offer for promoting greater use of WB.
