The University of Wisconsin-Madison Forestry Club and the University of Wisconsin- Steven’s Point Forestry Club took a tour of the Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, WI. Both clubs were shown the extensive Forest Products Lab Library (FPL Library) that houses more than 100,000 specimens and samples of tree species and usage. The tour also included these areas of focus within the research facility:
- Durability and Wood Protection Research
- Forest Biopolymer Science and Engineering
- Fiber and Chemical Analysis Research
- Engineering Properties of Wood – Wood Based Materials and Structures
- Paper Test Laboratory
- And so much more!
After the tour, both clubs took a trip out to Vilas Park to enjoy some good spring weather and some grilled food. (Will have photos of the grill out up soon…)
We hope to have more opportunities like this in the future where both Forestry Clubs can come together and learn something new in this profession.
Check out Steven’s Point Forestry Club!!! They are pretty cool…
