Welcome to the Forest Stewards Guild

Wood Based Construction Seminar was a success

On Wednesday, September 20, the Forest Stewards Guild partnered with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Dovetail Partners, and the Wood Products Council to deliver a days' worth of information about wood building systems as a sustainable, cost-effective solution for tackling modern design needs. The day wrapped up with a tour of Promega’s Crossroads, showcasing an innovative mix of glulam and crosslaminated timber. Presentations and details from this seminar will be available on this website in October.

The Forest Steward Guild hosted a policy forum for legislators on Thursday, September 21 at the Wisconsin State Capitol to follow up on this event.
