During his New Hampshire in February, Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt indicated his agency is preparing new federal energy policies that could help secure markets for biomass. In a letter to Gov. Chris Sununu, Pruitt suggested the agency plans to add biomass, including wood and other plant-based fuels, to its “‘all of the above’ energy portfolio.”


Administrator Pruitt met with industry members at a Round Table discussion in Manchester, NH on “Policy Update on EPA Programmatic Treatment of Biomass and the Forest Products Industry” to discuss biomass and other forest landowner issues. Tom Thomson owner of the Thomson Family Tree Farm in Orford, a former Chair of the National Tree Farm Policy Committee, presented him with a Tree Farm “Wood Is Good” bumper sticker for his office.
