While Wood-Mizer has been educating woodworkers about the positive environmental and economic impact of urban wood for years, the Urban Wood Seminar at IWF 2016 will be another step forward in saving more trees from going into the waste stream.

Wood-Mizer LLC, the world’s leading portable sawmill manufacturer, announces the sponsorship of an urban wood seminar at the International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta, GA. The Full Circle Urban Forestry Network comprised of Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, and Wisconsin members is presenting the free 90-minute seminar on Friday, August 26th at 1:00 p.m. at the Georgia World Congress Center.

The free educational seminar, “Urban Wood Utilization: Making Wood Products and Profits from Landscape Trees” will focus on:

  • How to find sources of urban wood
  • The unique source local and buy local marketing appeal of urban wood products
  • The environmental advantages of utilizing urban wood
  • An opportunity to receive answers from a panel of experienced urban wood product experts

Panelists for the seminar include urban wood experts Jennifer Alger of Far West Forest Products in California, Rick Siewert of Wood from the Hood in Minnesota, and Dwayne Sperber of Wudeward Urban Forest Products in Wisconsin.

Darryl Floyd, COO of Wood-Mizer, discusses the growth of urban wood utilization throughout the past decade. “With Wood-Mizer’s thin-kerf blade technology, diseased and dying city trees can find new life in a piece of furniture that could have otherwise gone to waste. Throughout the past decade, Wood-Mizer has seen a major influx of successful businesses who are utilizing urban sourced wood for their sawmilling operations and we are proud to manufacture a product that enables small businesses to be profitable with an underutilized resource. While Wood-Mizer has been educating woodworkers about the positive environmental and economic impact of urban wood for years, the Urban Wood Seminar at IWF 2016 will be another step forward in saving more trees from going into the waste stream.”

The Urban Wood Seminar is free of charge, but advanced registration is required to guarantee a seat. Learn more and register at http://iwfatlanta.com/Education/NBS6.
