About the USDA Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory:

For over 100 years the mission of the USDA Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory has been to use our Nation’s wood resources wisely and efficiently, while at the same timekeeping our forests healthy. The Forest Products Laboratory is the only research lab in the USDA Forest Service with a national mission with wood research spanning fiber and chemical sciences to composites and wood structures. Tour attendees will see a pilot-scale cellulose nanomaterial production facility, an engineering mechanics lab where we can test single fibers to full-scale wood structures, a composites processing facility, an environmental chamber to measure moisture movement through full-scale wall assemblies, and the largest (over 103,000 samples) and best research wood collection in the world. More information about the lab can be found at www.fpl.fs.fed.us
