    Description

    Interest in wood-based bio-energy production systems is increasing. Multiscalar, mixed-method approaches focusing on both biophysical and social aspects of procurable feedstock are needed. Family forests will likely play an important role in supplying forest-based biomass. However, access depends in large part on the management trends among family forest owners. This paper outlines proposed research to estimate feedstock availability in Virginia's Southside using United States Forest Service Forest Inventory Analysis data, cluster modeling, silviculture guidelines, property-level samples, and landowner management intentions. Aims are to contrast property-level volumes as mediated by owner intentions with values derived using a landscape level analysis.
