July 13, 2017 NOVA Roundtable


Note change of location from the May Roundtable which was postponed

NOVA Roundtable ~ July 13, 2017

AGENDA:  "Reclaiming Urban Wood: Opportunities to Success and Barriers"

Did you know that more urban wood is removed from urban areas than from National Forests?  Sadly, many of the trees removed from our cities are fated for the chipper.  Are there opportunities in Northern Virginia to save and recycle the best logs to create a variety of incredible green products?

Come join local arborists, researchers, and municipalities, and private industry professionals to discuss potential opportunities in Northern Virginia to salvage these trees and create products that create lasting value and have a story to tell.

With the assistance of a U.S. Forest Service Southern Region grant, there is a new infusion of effort to improve the utilization, marketing and value of trees removed from small forested parcels and urban areas. These actions will not only improve the use of these valuable wood resources, but it will also bolster Virginia’s forest products economy.

Recently the Virginia Urban Wood Group was formed to focus on this opportunity and promote the better use of urban trees.  We encourage you to visit the newly launched webpage to view the mission, goals and some great urban wood success stories:  www.vaurbanwood.org
