New York state announces actions to advance industry`s growth
Actions to advance New York`s forestry industry were announced at the state`s first-ever Forestry and Wood Products Summit, held in Binghamton Oct. 25. Members of ESF community were among the attendees, who included representatives from the Wood Products Development Council, academia, local government and the forestry and wood products industry.

Prior to the summit, Interim ESF President David Amberg and Dr. Maureen Fellows, vice president for government and external relations, participated in a tour of Wagner Lumber in Owego. Afterwards, the summit highlighted the state`s vibrant forest and wood products industry, and brought together industry experts to identify paths to sustain existing forest product markets and promote the development of new markets.

A video highlighting the potential of the state`s forest and wood products industry that featured Amberg debuted during the summit. "With this large resource there`s tremendous opportunity for growth. With better coordination between the stakeholders in the sector we can address issues such as workforce development to meet the needs of the industry, develop the proper facilities and manufacturing to take advantage of the value added to our timber products and work together to grow and expand the impact on the New York state economy," Amberg said in the video.

Dr. Neil Murphy of ESF`s Department of Environmental and Resources Engineering presented on the New Forest Economy, addressing issues including resources utilization, emerging technologies, and sustainability and carbon sequestration.
