Small Wood Conference
Craig Rawlings, CEO of Forest Business Network, works on the steering committee for this conference each year. He moderates a panel at each conference. The objective of this conference is to provide state-of-the-art information on small-tree utilization and to foster peer-to-peer learning.
Seeley Lake Woodstove Change-Out Program
FBN not only helped with the grant application for the program, but we’re also on the initiative’s team. The Change-Out aims to replace more than 100 old, inefficient woodstoves in the Seeley Lake, Montana community with new pellet stoves and EPA-certified woodstoves by December 2013.
