We look forward to an excellent dialog about the future of forest products with all members of the California forestry and forest conservation community. Our conference this summer will focus on learning the value added in specific industry practices and techniques for forest products and residues.

As a group, we will return for lunch back at the Gaia Hotel and Spa. After lunch, top industry professionals will present on a range of topics to include, small scale biomass gasification generators, biochar, cellulose nano materials/nano composites, and cross laminated timber. The meeting will conclude with a discussion on community involvement and look at approaches to create sustainable communities with engaged and enlightened citizens within our industry.
