National Forest Products Week
Awareness Activities Hosted by American Wood Council
Congress designated the third week of October (October 20-26, 2019) as National Forest Products Week (NFPW) to recognize the value of forest products and commit to conservation practices that help responsibly manage U.S. forests. This week celebrates the role and impact of forests and wood as an integral component to our nation's society.
As such, the American Wood Council (AWC) is calling all developers, architects, builders, material industries and forestry associations to come together and celebrate the impact of forests and wood products on our communities. As the voice of the North American wood products industry, AWC is providing resources for professionals to gather information on the key role forest and wood products play in built environment.
This year, AWC has worked with the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to declare Tuesday, October 22 “Timber Innovation Day.”
We invite all, members and industry professionals alike, to participate in the following activities, share resources and spread the word using #ForestProductsWeek on social.
