Engineers, architects, and those in construction are well acquainted with wood building material. With increasing interest in how forest products are produced and understanding the economic, social and environmental trade-offs associated with managing forests and producing forest products, this program provides a “look behind the curtain” for those associated with building but are not well acquainted with forest products manufacturing.
Basic forestry concepts will be introduced and participants will visit two sites to better understand how silviculture is applied in managing forests. Participants will also visit a couple of sawmills to better understand the process and nuances of lumber production.
