California Forest Products and Biomass Power Plant Map

 

  Welcome to the interactive map of California Forest Products and Biomass Power Plant facilities. We maintain current information on capacity, development, and status of facilities accepting feedstock from California wood resources. On this page you will find an interactive map and summary table of wood intake facilities. We also provide a variety of print-ready maps and raw data for download with assistance from the USFS.
