Tree Biomass – Energy Plant Site Feasibility Studies

Client: LD Jellison

Location: Various Locations, Pacific Northwest

Biomass, a renewable energy source, is an efficient way to generate energy from forest residues from timber harvesting and maintenance operations, as well as from mill residues from lumber and pulp and paper mill operations. We’ve partnered with LD Jellison over the last few years to provide biomass feasibility-study-related services both for new ventures and for established biomass businesses.

Our contribution to these projects has focused on assessing the feasibility of siting a new facility in various locations. More specifically, our work has included:

  • Drive-time analysis in order to identify fuel resource areas for desired haul times.
  • Calculating biomass volume for public and private properties in designated fuel resource areas.
  • Analyzing and summarizing information related to stand age, diameter classes, stocking class characteristics, and estimates of the merchantable biomass volume in designated fuel resource areas.
  • Assessing realistic opportunities for access, based on availability of roads and other landscape characteristics.
