  Wood mills, paper mills and Dominion Energy rely on biomas residuals to produce energy. This also provides tree farmers a way to dispose of the residuals. The burning of wood chips is not as harmful as burning coal and oil.  Trees are a renewable energy resource and can be replaced in thirty-five years unlike coal, oil, and gas. Timber land owners already face a market that is being reduced by competition from Canada and the use of plastic and other materials in building. I own timber lands as an investment and as away to keep clean forest lands not used for commercial purposes..
