TOPIC(S): Woody Biomass Utilization, Upper Peninsula of Michigan
Interest in wood-based bioenergy is greatly increasing as people look for renewable and alternative forms of energy. This is especially true in Michigan's Upper Peninsula where nearly 80% of land is in forest. This workshop, held on 10 March 2009, brought together foresters, natural resource professionals, loggers, forest industry members, conservation districts, government organizations, and others to explore the future of woody biomass utilization in the region and what that might mean for local forests, economies, and communities.
Funding for this project was provided by the National Association of Conservation Districts
