About the TREES Heat Nebraska Program
Nebraska Forest Service's assistance program works with interested groups to investigate and establish wood energy systems in Nebraska. Historically, there has been a lack of capital assistance for the development and installation of these energy systems, often derailing potential projects. The NFS and its Forest Products Utilization program is dedicated to addressing common barriers associated with the development of woody biomass utilization markets.NFS offers a variety of woody biomass energy technical assistance opportunities:
- pre-feasibility economic analysis
- wood resource analysis
- fuel supply chain development
- project partnership development
Available Financial Assistance
These grants help establish wood energy systems through technical and financial assistance. Cost-share assistance is provided to interested organizations to complete feasibility studies and project planning, as well as the actual purchase, installation and construction of wood energy systems.
