Community Biomass Groups
There is significant and growing interest in woody biomass utilization because of the positive contribution it can make to fuels reduction, sustainable forest management and local economic development. In California there are many community groups and institutional projects interested in the topic. Some community groups are grass roots efforts, others have the support of professional facilitators and organizational resources; and other projects are led by non-profits or government agencies. The objectives are all similar: attempt to preserve or create markets for woody biomass from forest health projects. The map, below, represents a partial listing of these groups. It will help you to understand where activity is and relationships between projects.
