Innovation in the production, design and use of wood products dominate today’s headlines. Specifically, how the new ICC code enables tall wood buildings in the US, and the fire testing that supported the change; how innovation in wood technology is improving our sustainability factor and related innovation showcases in Vancouver, BC and Hanover Germany; and the 2019 nominees for BC’s 15th annual Wood Design awards.

In other news: Quebec and Canada support CelluForces’ cellulose nanocrystal facility; a  Mississippi mill manager is invited to Trump’s State of the Union Speech; and a PEW foundation feature on logging’s role in wildfire management.

Finally, the Frogs will be reporting live from the Association of BC Forest Professionals AGM in Kamloops. Looking forward to talking with some of you at the ice breaker!
