Northern Research Station
October Feature - TIMBER!!!
From basic shelter to high-end finishing and furniture, wood is ingrained in our lives. Northern Research Station science includes research supporting a sustainable future for timber as well as the forest products industry.
This month, we present a scientist who asked millenials what they know about forest products; research aimed at improving growing conditions for black walnut; and a partnership that addresses land managers’ questions about prescribed fire and timber quality.
