Georgia's Forests are managed by the Georgia Forestry Commission. In 2009 the Commission completed a statewide assessment of biomass resources:

The Commission also provides a number of informational resources with regard to forest biomass for energy generation:

Georgia offers exemption to biomass materials, including forest thinning residues, logging residues, and timber processing residues, from the state's sales and use taxes:
