Battle Creek Regional Park


Description


Cutting, moving, sorting, staging and utilization of ecologically inappropriate woody plant material to restore 70 acres of oak woodland. There were two separate contracts; one for the harvest of woody biomass material and the other to sell the material. The biomass sale generated $0 resulting in 27 semi-truck loads = 540 tons of material used for bioenergy.
