Colorado gets $100,000 biomass grant

DENVER ” The U.S. Forest Service has awarded a $100,000 grant to a Colorado project that will sell small trees, tree limbs and other forest leftovers known as biomass.

Biomass is a byproduct of forest restoration projects, thinning operations and bark-beetle treatments. It will be sold to sawmills, post and pole yards, firewood outlets, biomass heating projects, mulch and compost sellers and others.

The grant includes projects in Boulder, Clear Creek, Gilpin, Jefferson and Larimer counties.

The grant was awarded to Colorado State Parks, the Colorado Biomass Working Group and the Colorado State Forest Service.
