ADV - The Future of the Forest Products Industry
Cloquet, MN 55720
The forest products industry has faced a number of setbacks recently, including numerous mill closures and an aging logging workforce. At the same time, a number of new opportunities have emerged that use wood in innovative ways, including constructing buildings with mass timber and using wood for biomass and bioenergy. Katie Fernholz with Dovetail Partners will provide an overview of these opportunities and provide an outlook for the forest products industry.
