We open for registration, coffee and donuts at 8 am, start the business discussions at 9 am, have lunch at noon, and in the afternoon have a combination of further business discussions and outdoor processor demos.

Our business discussions discuss how firewood fits into forest management, the need to remove excess forest materials for reductions of fire and insect hazards, business management and marketing, firewood processing equipment, dry kilns, financial management and other important business topics.
