Innovation in design and processing of forest products is essential to meeting the challenges of 21st century forestry. Forests and attitudes toward their use are changing while demand for wood in its various forms increases with the population. Engineered wood products offer new opportunities to meet consumer needs from a diverse resource. In addition, processes such as nondestructive evaluation, recycling of wood and paper, and advances in pulping and papermaking offer new possibilities for managing the forest for its many uses.
