Welcome to Woody Biomass Utilization

The Woody Biomass Utilization Group is a collaborative outreach effort working to advance the understanding and use of wood and woody biomass.

As part of the University of California system-wide Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, we provide science-based information, technical assistance, and information about funding opportunities related to biomass utilization interests throughout the state of California.
