Summary

Delaware's forests are managed by the State Forest Service (DFS), within the State Department of Agriculture. In 2010, the Forest Service issued its Resource Assessment and Strategy documents:

Delaware Forest Resource Assessment: http://dda.delaware.gov/forestry/061810_DFS_ResourceAssessment.pdf

Statewide Forest Strategy: http://dda.delaware.gov/forestry/061810_DFS_Strategy.pdf

The Forest Strategy document sets several goals with respect to biomass energy, including an analysis of the resource, developing restrictions on wood energy facilities, promoting a Fuels for Schools program, and developing at least one new market for low-value wood such as bio-energy.
