The Woody Biomass Program
at SUNY-ESF

Willow biomass is an environmentally sound, locally produced, renewable source of energy and bioproducts.

Driven by concerns about global warming, air pollution, rural development and national security, research conduced by SUNY-ESF has reconnected the historic willow cultivation industry to central New York. For almost two decades SUNY-ESF has teamed up with over 20 organizations to facilitate the commercialization of willow crops and other woody biomass for bioenergy and bioproducts in the Northeast and Midwest United States.

USDA Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP) for Willow in Central and Northern NY

USDA has announced a BCAP project in Central and Northern NY that will support the establishment of 3,500 acres of willow biomass crops.
