To Our Readers:



As the Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) closes its 105th year of serving America as the national research lab of the USDA Forest Service, we want to thank all of you for your continued support and wish you a very happy, safe new year ahead.

In 2016, we look forward to continuing to keep you abreast of all the high-quality, science-based innovation performed here at the lab — research which benefits our nation’s forests and literally adds to the well-being of every American, every day.

Warm Regards and Happy New Year!
