February 05, 2009

Cindy Ragland, a District ranger with the Talladega National Forest, will discuss the biomass co-firing process, and Mark Hall, a regional Extension agent with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, will discuss the conversion of wood chips to electricity at a Feb. 19 workshop in Jasper.

Hosted by the Walker County Soil & Water Conservation Districts and Bradley/Murphy Forestry Natural Resources Extension Trust, "Woody Biomass: Alabama's Renewable Energy Source" will begin with registration at 9:30 a.m. at the CHS Building, 204 East 19th Street. The workshop will conclude around 1:30 p.m., followed by the "Champion Tree" dedication ceremony of an American elm.

Other topics on the workshop agenda include trends in forestry, utilizing logging debris and cost-share assistance for pre-commercial thinning. Dorman Grace, first vice president of the Walker County Farmers Federation and chairman of the Walker County Soil & Water Conservation District, will lead an open discussion of the issues.
