Who We Are
We are a company dedicated to renewable energy, water, restoration, forestry husbandry and green energy. From our experiences in ecological restoration, habitat improvement and silvicultural treatments, we know that massive amounts of biomass remain on the ground following each project. The remaining biomass is considered a fire hazard in most instances and a wasted resource due to the limited number of end users. Premier Pellets plans to utilize salvage small wood that is being left in the forest after logging operations to rot and waste today. Considering the number of government projects active today, small wood utilization can potentially become a valuable green/renewable energy source.
