An Opportunity We Cannot Afford to Waste
One of the greatest challenges facing forest managers in the United States on both public and private lands is restoring and maintaining the health and resilience of forest ecosystems. Adapting to climate change and mitigating the effects increases both the magnitude of the effort needed and the urgency of taking action. One option for adaptation and mitigation is sustainable woody biomass utilization.
The strategy was developed to promote and guide the removal of woody biomass from agency and partner lands to achieve Forest Service strategic goals, and a variety of critical benefits. It will be updated periodically to incorporate advancements that enhance the effectiveness of woody biomass utilization. The strategy provides scope and direction for the agency to better coordinate programs and respond to an increased demand for biomass management and utilization.
