Title: "Value-adding to NW Ont tree species using high temperature kilns" with Dr. Mat Leitch, Faculty of Forestry and the Forest Environment.

Value-adding to under-valued species in NW Ont has potential to not only better utilize our forest resource but also widen the forest sector base in NW Ont. This will create jobs and move the forest products industry from mainly primary producers to secondary producers were product value is increased. Potentially, the supply of raw materials required can become decreased through better utilization. Commercial utilization of high temperature kilns can increase economic value of under-value tree species. To find out more, join us. Everyone welcome.
