Veneer Research Part Of Latest FS Grant Program

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service is supporting the development and expansion of forest markets by recently awarding eight grants totaling nearly $1.45 million through the agency’s Wood Education and Resource Center. Grants were awarded to programs in Missouri, Georgia, Minnesota, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia.

Located in Princeton, West Virginia, and administered by the Forest Service, the Wood Education and Resource Center partners with the forest products industry on sustainable forest products in the 35 states of the eastern hardwood forest region.

The Wood Education and Resource Center’s 2020 Wood Forest Markets Projects includes a project with the University of Minnesota to conduct a comprehensive assessment of several eastern softwood species peeler logs and determine the technical and economic fitness of these species for laminated veneer lumber.
