Forest biomass includes residual tree tops, branches, foliage, non-merchantable woody stems of trees and shrubs, pre-existing dead woody material and flail chipping residue.

Pulpwood fibre generated from full-tree chipping is not considered biomass.


Individuals, corporations or other provincial bodies with existing or proposed New Brunswick-based processing facilities are eligible to apply for a Crown biomass allocation.

Licensees must adhere to the attached policy and guidelines.


The production of green energy from forest biomass will assist us in reducing our dependency on fossil fuel based energy, reduce overall energy costs and provide new forest product market opportunities.
