Dorset Woody Biomass Pre-Feasibility Study 2013 - Addendum - May 2017

A regional review of wood product availability from private native forest resources surround Scottsdale.  Prepared for the Coordinator General's Office, Department of State Growth on behalf of Private Forests Tasmania by Jeremy Wilson, Esk Mapping & GIS.

This document is an addendum to the 'Dorset Woody Biomass Pre-feasibility Study' commissioned in 2013 which aimed to provide regional context to strategic estimates of resource availability from the non-industrial private native forest estate (NIPNF).  This addendum utilised the GIS models  developed  in  the 2013 study to estimate the potential volumes and availability of a broader range of wood products likely to be available from the NIPNF resource in the Dorset region.

Use of Wood Residues for Heating

The use of wood residues for heating by agencies from all levels of government has a great but largely unrealised potential in Tasmania and other cooler Australian regions.  This escellent story from New Zealand was published in the weekly electronic forest industry newsletter 'WoodWeek' and it serves as an excellent reminder of what untapped potential there is to reap benefits in regional economic growth, employment and environment if we take this seriously.
