Workshop To Address Tennessee’s Growing Need For Firewood Producers

Wednesday, July 20, 2016

An alliance of state, federal and non-governmental partners announced a second in a series of public opportunities for learning about how to develop a business to heat-treat firewood in kilns to fill increasing demand at State Parks across Tennessee.

On Friday, Aug. 12, a free workshop will be held at the University of Tennessee Extension Center in Murfreesboro to provide more information on new regulations for firewood in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Tennessee State Parks, on the insect pests that prompted these regulations, and the new business opportunities that have sprung up to meet public demand.
