Description: Public and private forests are in critical need of restoration by thinning small-diameter timber. If economical and value-added uses for this thinned material can be found, forest restoration costs could be offset and catastrophic wildfires would be minimized. At the same time, forestry- dependent rural communities?faced with diminishing timber supplies, loss of jobs, high unemployment, and declining community vitality?are looking for new ways to make a living from nearby forests. From information gathered in onsite interviews, this report describes how several businesses and community organizations are contributing to the health of the forest and their community by successfully making use of small- diameter and underutilized material.
