Join VT Coverts and VT Woodlands Association for Coffee with Vermont’s Wood Utilization & Wood Energy Program Leader Paul Frederick and Emma Hanson, Wood Energy Coordinator, both with Forest, Parks and Recreation. Paul’s focus is on maintaining a vibrant forest-based economy that helps to keep our forests forested while reducing dependence on fossil fuels. He has an eye on all aspects of wood availability, harvesting, processing, and markets including the use of wood as an energy source. Emma’s focus is on outreach and information to potential wood energy users. She is a resource for local energy committees, civic groups, organizations, and homeowners interested in exploring wood heat options. Together they are a dynamic team who combine their individual experience and expertise to help drive our forest economy and growth in the advanced wood heat sector.
