  • Bring information and technology about processing, marketing and business-related skills to existing and emerging businesses involved in the development and manufacturing of wood products.
  • Bring information and technology to existing and emerging businesses that focus on urban wood utilization, hazardous fuels reductions, and utilization options geared to improving stewardship or use woody biomass as a domestic energy source.
  • Encourage the adoption of new technology to improve competitiveness and profitability.
  • Provide support and key information to entrepreneurs and start-up businesses.
  • Address global issues such as:  1) phytosanitation of wood packaging materials, 2) assisting communities and industries facing threats from invasive species such as the Emerald Ash Borer.
