There is increasing interest in forest restoration throughout the United States' Inland Northwest given concerns over forest health, fire risk and climate change.  However, markets for dimensional lumber have remained relatively low given global ecomonic conditions that limit management activities in the forest in many areas.  Utilizational of small diameter material for biomass holds excellent promise for assisting landowners, including state and federal governments, in treating their forests.  We are exploring the issues in ecological, social and economic dimensions across multiple scales to assist new policy formulation relative to land management and wildland fire.
