Bioenergy Harvesting Opportunities and Volume Estimates for Potential Tenure

Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations region and district staff conducted a study in Fall 2007 to estimate the potential tenure opportunity for bioenergy. The opportunity is guided by forest stewardship requirements, available low-grade timber, and available Allowable Annual Cut.
