Description: From 2005–10, the USDA Forest Service’s Woody Biomass Utilization Grant program provided grants for equipment acquisition and technical assistance to rural businesses and other entities. These grants were intended to encourage enterprise development, address market barriers to biomass utilization (ranging from small-diameter sawtimber to chips and logging residues), and decrease forest restoration costs by adding value to biomass products. At the request of the USDA Forest Service – State and Private Forestry’s Forest Products Technology Marketing Unit at the Forest Products Laboratory, we evaluated the impacts of this program in eastern Oregon and eastern Arizona (see Table 1, page 2). These areas both have extensive public lands, high wildfire risk, and limited biomass businesses.
