Biomass = Rural Economic Development

  1. 1. Expanding Rural America through Community Forestry <br />
  2. 2. Community Forestry<br />“Community forestry is concerned with how benefits from forest resources, such as timber and non-timber products, jobs and other opportunities, are distributed. Community forestry seeks to ensure that local people have access to a portion of the benefits flowing from nearby forests.”<br />
  3. 3. Advantages of Community Forestry<br />
  4. 4. “Landowners might be better served by working cooperatively to organize delivery, establish silvicultural and quality standards, minimize production risk, as well as standardize pricing by participating in a supply cooperative <br />that undertakes this managerial and logistical role.”<br />Source: Missouri Forest Products Association, Producer‐Owned Wood Energy Feedstock Supply Company Feasibility Study<br />
  5. 5. Mission<br />Kilwa Biomass has a commitment to enrich the fabric of rural America by expanding economic opportunities. <br />We partner with vested interests within the community to develop a sustainable, safe, secure and cost-effective supply chain management system of feedstock for Biomass Sellers and User Facilities.<br />
