Back to Linking Habitat Restoration to Bioenergy and Local Economies


Warsaw Wildlife Management Area (WMA), Dennison


Description


Cutting, moving, sorting, staging and utilization of ecologically inappropriate woody plant material to restore 15 acres of prairie. This project was managed by the MN DNR as part of a joint public/private project with the Umbanhowar Prairie and Eggum Parcel totaling 25 acres. A combined biomass harvest/biomass sale bid solicitation was piloted to pay the harvest contractor to remove the unwanted vegetation while also requiring them to properly utilize the biomass. The material was valued at $500 resulting in 82 semi-loads of commercial mulch, 6 log loads of cottonwood for pallets, and 14 semi-loads = 280 tons of ground material for bioenergy. This project was accomplished through a state bid solicitation and not a grant agreement.
