Summary

Texas' forested lands are managed by the Texas Forest Service, a division of Texas A&M University. TFS has issued the "Statewide Assessment of Forest Resources", which includes discussion of the opportunity for utilizing woody biomass from forestry operations: http://txforestservice.tamu.edu/uploadedFiles/Sustainable/assessment/Texas%20State%20Assessment.pdf

In 2008, the TFS issued a document titled "Estimation of Woody Biomass Availability for Energy in Texas", a study mandated by Texas House Bill 1090: http://txforestservice.tamu.edu/uploadedFiles/Sustainable/econdev/27192_TFSBiomassStudy_Dec_17_2008.pdf

The Texas State Energy Conservation Office offers information on biomass fuels including biomass fuels obtained from forests.: http://www.seco.cpa.state.tx.us/energy-sources/biomass/forests.php
