BCAP Update NC Loggers and Forest2Market

Found this interesting Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP) update at Forest2Market (click link).

The post references another report at NC Loggers with Doug Duncan, Executive Director of the N.C. Association of Professional Loggers, and Kelly Novak of the USDA-FSA.

Interesting points:

- All facilities will have to reapply.  Applications may take 3+ months to be accepted (well they say 3 months, but I think we should assume it could take longer).

- All biomass must be harvested under a biomass harvesting plan.

- An environmental impact review must be conducted.  State forestry or environmental agencies and the National Resources Conservation Service may be allowed to conduct environmental impact review.
