Welcome to Lab Notes!

Welcome to Lab Notes, the Forest Products Laboratory’s new online news feed. This is the spot for unique and interesting stories about FPL research, scientists, and the greater forest products industry.

Along with Twitter, our photo-sharing page on Flickr, and the US Forest Service YouTube page, Lab Notes is yet another avenue for learning about the great science and people of FPL.

To get you started, we’ve loaded up some recent stories from NewsLine, our quarterly newsletter. With Lab Notes you can easily follow the hyperlinks and get to know our researchers, their work, and how it all fits within a larger forestry-sector context. As one of our assistant directors likes to say, it’s “tree-mendous!”

Thanks for your interest in the Forest Products Laboratory, the national research lab of the U.S. Forest Service.
