Back to Linking Habitat Restoration to Bioenergy and Local Economies


Stagecoach Prairie Natural Area, Afton


Description


Cutting, moving, sorting, staging and utilization of ecologically inappropriate woody plant material to restore 44 acres of prairie. ENRTF funding paid for 32 acres; the remaining 12 project acres were funded by the 2007 Minnesota Legislature (Laws of 2007, Chapter 57, Article 2, Sec. 3, subd. 6). There were two separate contracts; one for the harvest of woody biomass material and the other to sell the material. The biomass sale generated $10,600 (used for the Carleton College Cowling Arboretum project) resulting in 450 cords of pine logs for pulp, pine cabin logs, and 70 semi-truck loads = 1,728 tons for bioenergy.
