Forest bioenergy is the use of renewable forestry biomass to produce energy products. Forest biomass is any plant or tree material produced by forest growth. Forest landowners and existing forest industry have the potential to grow this new bioenergy industry rapidly by providing the needed biomass fuel and infrastructure for new mills that will produce wood pellets, industrial heat, electricity, and transportation fuels.
