Woodland Biomass Power, LTD is an alternative energy company located in nearby Woodland. They use biomass, or plant and agricultural waste (such as lawn clippings, nut shells and wood from torn down homes) to fuel a boiler which in turn produces steam to generate electricity 24/7. It is a preferred method of disposing such waste as opposed to open-air burning (or burying in landfill).
Interestingly the boiler uses so much fuel they have to purchase fuel from landfills and other sources however they accept the same material for free at their facility (which would normally cost a great deal to dump at a landfill). Here's an article that explains their operation.
Wood waste, including boards, fencing can be brought to the Woodland Biomass Facility for free. They even take tree trimmings etc. sometimes. Call the Woodland Biomass Facility for more information, and to ensure that they are currently accepting new material. Occasionally they have too much feed stock and they stop accepting material until they have more room again.

Much better than putting it in the street for the Davis Waste Removal folks to pick up. —RocksandDirt
