Too often, urban wood waste, a valuable and renewable resource, is sent to landfills. As these landfills reach capacity, and as we search for more sustainable ways to conduct our lives and businesses, we should embrace the tremendous economic opportunity provided by reutilizing urban wood. The Parks & People Foundation, in conjunction with the USDA Forest Service, is sponsoring a fall forum on Urban Wood Waste Utilization.
The following topics will be covered:
* Business Planning Fundamentals
* Merchandising Products developed from Wood Waste
* Wood to Energy Programs
* Wood Recovery after an Invasive Outbreak
* Grant Opportunities for Wood Waste Ventures
