NASF joins others in letter to Forest Service Chief

Last week NASF joined other forestry organizations in a letter to Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell to emphasize the importance of wood being classified as green product. The current LEED standards discourages the use of wood relative to other building materials and discriminates against two widely used forest certification standards.

The letter also gave suggestions about the direction the Forest Service should take to begin moving toward positioning wood as a green product, when sustainably sourced.
