Woody Feedstock Aggregation Pilot Program for the Central Sierra Nevada Region

Sierra Business Council (SBC) has recently launched the Woody Feedstock Aggregation Pilot Program within the Central Sierra Nevada Region. This initiative is focused on five counties; Alpine, Amador, Tuolumne, Calaveras and Mariposa. The Central Sierra Pilot Program will be an opportunity for innovation with regards to finding value-added uses for byproducts generated as a result of forest restoration and fuels reduction activities. SBC retained TSS to provide project support by conducting a feedstock supply and cost analysis, review current workforce and forest feedstock supply infrastructure, and conduct a feasibility study for a value-added wood products yard within the five-county Central Sierra region.
